The spider has molted again and I can see it's shed at the bottom. Its tunnels have all be obscured by moss so I can't see into her tunnels.

(feeding on a superworm)

the plant grew and split into two separate plants =P

Caught a larger trapdoor spider. Took a pic.

after not seeing the spider for a while, I decided to rehouse her, but when I emptied out the box, the spider was nowhere to be seen!

after checking and flipping around for a while, I realized it had somehow escaped  :( . I could catch another one, and i'll look around my house.

 

lets hope I find her.

Sorry about the loss... Still keep an eye out for him/her, though! I once found a leopard gecko in my house five years after it escaped.
