That's exactly the scene that was coming to my mind when I was watching Jpet's video. Of course, I'm such a dOrK I couldn't remember the name of the spider or that it was from part III of the trilogy and I own the trilogy! Right now I can't even recall the title of the first one...sheeesh. However, I have excellent scene recall. I'm thinking some music in the right genre added to the vid to further build up the suspense when roachie is finally nabbed would be a nice touch.
What type of bedding do you use for your spiders? Do they actually drink from the water dish or is that for soaking? Do spiders even soak??
For bedding I use peat moss. They do drink from the water dishes sometimes, and sometimes they fill them up with substrate. They dont really soak, but one guy I've seen has a species that he keeps in a terrarium with a small pond and it has actually gone in and caught some feeder fish.
Those were the coolest spiders ever. Weirdly, I even liked the cockroaches :D
Im a big bug freak haha
Love them all.
Except small shiny black spider (wth no hair). Im not scared of them, they are just ugly >.> lol
