My A Genic insists on filling its water bowl with dirt, and idk why? Too much humidity maybe?

Hiding the water source that usually attracts predators. Normal for them I'm sure in the wild. Mine do it all the time.

My female genetic does this also, along with most of my roseas. I have some, like my female C. fasciatum and a couple OBT's who web over it, and then it's hard to get out and clean.

I have a few that do this aswell,
not all the same breed either,

I have 2 l.parahybana out of 4 that do it, 2 b.smithi out 4 that do it,
usually when they have buried the water dish they have trashed the enclosure aswell
I had thought that they may be hunting for food, as they usually feed well after,

but it is more like redecorating......and awkward teens lol

I provide 2 water dishes for my adult female A.Genic Some times she buries 1 but never both. Sometimes I think it just gives the big girl something to do!

It's a mystery in my part. I think she is just moving her home around. but the humdity thing doesn't seem right. I agree with madamwlf.

My L. parahybana sling (1 1/4") has started filling its water dish as well now. And, my N. chromatus female (3 3/4") not only puts substrate in her dish...but she also poops in it as well. Go figure...lol. scratch
