    Come on dude! Care before content! I don’t think it’s right that you’re purposely putting the spider in a environment that causes it stress.

    Is there maybe too much room in the enclosure? I have no experience with that species, just thinking out loud 😊

  • Bryann Alimurong

    I believe the reason why your Linothele Megatheloides and M. Balfouri communal is not producing good web castles is because the branches or anchor points that you put in the enclosure are too slim and thin. You need thicker ones that they well be able to climb on interconnected on the enclosure. That will surely produce amazing web castles for sure.

    Ngl dude, you're putting a sling in a huge enclosure and expecting it to feel safe and web. The first sling webbed because its enclosure is small enough that it feels comfortable. You've given the second sling a huge, bare space. Of course its going to spend all its time trying to hide it feels exposed. For someone so experienced im amazed you never considered this... **edits** spelling

    I know you have cool video to make and everything, but here it wouldnt be what you want but what the spider wants? it wants a really cozzy home where it can hide and start webbing. You took it out of his/her cozzy home because it didnt do what you wanted, which is a bit sad because i dont think after 3 days of getting stressed out and his/her house being destroyed, will web up anything

    Petko, have you thought about getting any Latrodectus mactans (Fabricius)? They live here natively in Arizona. I’ve been watching your channel for years sense DD1 and never seen one featured. Why not? They are great webbing spiders. I’ve caught them in jars and within an hour of catching them the start building webs. Just curious.

    Honestly it was the first time I didn't like a video in this channel... Why create a HP themed enclosure with a cave and then cover the cave? Why rush the poor spider and stress her out for 3 days just to have a time-lapse of her webbing an enclosure that clearly is too big for her right now... I honestly think you should just open the cave again and let her be there as much as she wants or maybe find a new enclosure with less space without a hide and more anchor points

  • incomplete_n00b

    Yea, keep stressing it out mate & it'll be dead within the month. Add to that you're still not using a proper tub to transfer the spider between enclosures. You yourself said you have no idea how toxic it's bite is... this is where anyone would be especially careful..

  • Aleksandr Feher
    Aleksandr Feher2 miesięcy temu

    while i still enjoyed the video as i love seeing your videos i think you should have left in the hide, i know thats not what you "wanted" to have happen with the enclosure but im sure given enough time it definitely still wouldve webbed the entire enclosure as time went on. i think it was a little too unrealistic to expect the spider to be able web that WHOLE enclosure overnight given a few weeks im sure it wouldve made an impressive web, and after a few months it wouldve been perfect but expecting it all at once is just unrealistic dude, looking forwaard to seeing if the enclosure gets brought back to its former design and looking forward for the next video

    I don't know if Eratigena atrica is a native spider in Croatia but imo they are super heavy webbers and you can even house a new one in the same web when they die (they ha e rather short lifespans. I have those spiders as pets for more than two years now and I have one enclosure, that was home for 4 Eratigenas and I never removed every webbing. So every new spider just webbed up the whole thing more and more and now there is a webmat, thats so thick, you cant even look through it anymore. The most fascinating thing is, although the spiders could hide under the web (it is webbed like a roof or so), they are sitting on top of it most of the time. Although I built a hide for the first inhabitant, it completely ignored it and started webbing up everything above. And all spiders who followed, did the same. Just one used the web to place her eggsacks underneath but thats all. So, if heavy webbers are needed, that are not just trying to hide anywhere, take Eratigena females. But nonetheless, you could at least record a funny clip, even if that wasnt the goal.

    I will be honest petko, it was super cruel to push him out of every hide it wanted to use. You need to let it feel safe, and it needs much more anchor points and a smaller enclosure. I do not aprove this, sorry, its just wrong

    It was funny and interesting. Same experience with Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens. They only web a lot when there is no hide. It means the spider/tarantula prefers to hide than to web. I think its energy saving. 🤓

    Don't destroy the beautiful enclousure you made for her, please. Just let her do whatever she wants instead of trying to make her do what you want her to do and be patient! I feel that a few days need to pass until she starts webbing out of the hide/cave. As soon as you see webs appearing out of it then you can try that timelapse. We love your videos with or without timelapse, Petko. You show us these awesome animals and your wonderful projects, so don't worry bro

    First time that I kinda didn’t like the video... just look at 9:00 and compare it to 14:30. As a Harry Potter fan I was really hoping you’d add another spider to it, maybe the one they based Aragog on.. But then you destroyed your coolest enclosure, didn’t let the spider settle in whatsoever and instead stressed it out for 3 days after an already stressful rehouse, because you had only your own goals in mind and not the well-being of the animal. This was so unlike you. I wish you would have just let the spider hide and get comfortable, maybe it would’ve come out the 2nd night to web, just imagine how cool it could’ve looked with the original design. And even if it didn’t you could’ve just made a quick feeding video for Monday instead. I hope you learned your lesson, that you can not force an animal like that to do something, and be less selfish and impatient from now on. See you on Friday!

    It wanted to hide you should have just let it go. Let the spider be a spider!! I was sad you kept messing with it. I’ve been watching for years now but just got my first T’s in November (A T. albo and T. vagans) then December a friend gave me a Versi, then I bought a GBB and last Sunday I bought a Salmon Pink. All are slings. While I’m still not quite over my fear I have became very attached to them and now actually think they look amazing. You and your channel was a huge part of my decision over the last 3-4 years to try to overcome my fear and satisfy my fascination growing my knowledge and love for them.
