When we were forced to evacuate due to flooding I made sure to take all of our pets. My sister wasn’t too thrilled because this included all 12 of my pet tarantulas… She doesn’t really like spider pets genuinely much even though I couldn’t leave them behind to drown. I was thankful that my sister was understanding and let me take the tarantulas to her residence. She didn’t have a shelf for myself and others to put our pets on, like I have at my own residence. I basically had to put their tanks all on the floor in the kitchen area. Shortly after our arrival we opted to go out to get something to eat. When we got home my sister pointed out the fact that our tarantulas were running around in their tanks. It was freaking her out, and this was truly unusual behavior. It is exceptionally rare for all 12 of the tarantulas to be doing it at the same time, but it wasn’t long before I was able to determine the cause. It turns out that my sister has underfloor heating in her residence. My spiders were getting completely overheated on the heated floors while we were having a bite to eat. Being cold blooded critters, they get extra active when it happens to be warm. So I moved the spiders off of the heated floors and onto the kitchen table. They all settled back down in a little bit of time. I will need to get a new shelf for the spiders though. I don’t actually think that my sister will be cool with them staying on the kitchen table for a few days and I don’t want to put them back down on the radiant heated floors either. Hopefully we can go back home soon.
