Today, we're back with Tenebrus, our 6th instar Suntiger... As is typical of her and the species as whole, they generally ONLY come out when there is food on offer, and are usually very speedy about hiding again as soon as they've caught it...

The last video I attempted to make of this spider never happened because I didn't have time to even press record before little 'black lightning' was out of burrow, twice round the tank, had caught dinner, and gone back home again. 

Here, she was a bit slower, so we do at least have a video. To be fair, I should warn you, this one does go on a bit, and when she eventually catches her food, she strikes it off-screen, so no spectacular hunting action today. I'd say it was worth it for the in-burrow macro shots, though, or which there are plenty !! Enjoy...
