Lost In the Pumpkin Patch

On June 1st I re-housed Lucy, my Hapalopus Sp. Columbia Large, or pumpkin patch tarantula. That was the last time I saw her, she's be buried ever since. No signs of life. I hadn't seen her. She was not taking any of the food offered. Nothing! I was starting to get nervous.

Being new to tarantula keeping I had to fight the urge to dig her up, to see! All the advice is, "Leave them, they do this, bury themselves and don't eat." But it's hard. Well, after 24 days of not knowing if she was alive or even still in there, I was a little worried she might have escaped, I finally have confirmation she's alive and in her enclosure! Overnight she took a pre-killed cricket!

Midnight snack!
