Chilobrachys fimbriatus, Macrothele gigas, Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli, Harpegnathos venator are bloody hard because they don't stop still either.

My lass has been hugely secretive for months now. Hopefully she'll be out and about soon as she must be getting hungry.

I ended up giving them about 8" of sub sloped up towards the back. The female dug right to the bottom but I didn't get any eggs.

Not sure if it's still the case but a few years ago Bristol Zoo whete the only ones to ever breed them in captivity.
