Yeah, one of my tarantulas uses the waterdish I provided her as her pool! quite cool huh!
Her species is called Hysterocrates gigas. These guys are from West Africa, and can get up to 6.5″( Varies apparently, mine is like 7″…) Usually this species is quite defensive, rearing up and stuff, but mine seems like a docile scaredycat, rather run away then defend her turf.
Last time my girl molted was September 2010, so she should be good for another molt pretty soon! I am excited to see what she will look like! some badass beast she will be!
Anyways heres some pictures of her exploring her waterdish while getting a cricket.

Hope you enjoyed!
