Glad I found this thread......

I was wondering if I had somehow resurrected the ancient demon of snapping fangs and jumping kicks or something...........

From my avatar you can probably guess what I mean.

These guys are scary........... I got two, guessing about 14 or 15 cm each.

One is completely mental..The pose in the pic is its normal walking around pose. The only time it is not flexing its biceps is
when it is lurking in its favourite corner at 2 am, deciding which part of me to devour first......

Second one is a bit more chilled, but not by much.
I VERY nearly got chomped while feeding them this past week.........
As Kudu mentioned, the flying ninja jumping bites seem to be a speciality.....

Also, the mad one has webbed up his entire enclosure, from top to bottom, strands running everywhere.
Second one, almost no webbing.

Both have hides, waterbowls.

I am no expert, but I think both are content.
No running around, no aggravated behaviour, things like that.
Eating fine.
Funny thing also, they almost never flick ?? It is jump and bite, or nothing.


I found this on another forum, think it sums them up perfectly:

That is so true regarding these little demons... loved mine to bits and it was my first T. According to the pet shop where I got it from its a nice beginners T suitable for handling. Ja right!!!!!!!!

Hehehe. I actually rehoused this particular spider (which turned out to be female) two days ago.
Got her out of the old into a ice cream container with no hassle whatsoever. From the ice cream container back into the enclosure however earned me a couple of grey hairs. She actually took 2-3 snaps at a time in quick succession, fully automatic fangs if you will uzi

Sometimes I think my sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others
