Well a friend on a plant forum I frequent asked me if he could name my Chromatopelma "Shelob". So said sure though it may turn out that "Shelob" is a "Helob". And while I know that "Lord of the Rings" fans may be disappointed in that I made no effort to mimic the movie setting, well here it is. (Sorry this is rather picture heavy but some shots just seemed to be clearer for certain details.)
From the "back" of the enclosure:
From the front:
Through the open mouth of the jar:
Shelob exploring her/his new domain:
Shelob dancing the Tarantella after having caught her/his "dance partner"
Some parts of the skeleton have already gotten tossed around a bit between the actions of the crickets and the T ... but I figured that would happen. And while I was hoping Shelob would choose to hide out in the little cubbyhole formed by the dry riverbed and the rocks, it at least did decide to start making its web hide behind and on top of the rocks .... so at least the general desired area. I'll be interested to see how the look develops as Shelob continues to decorate.
