i gave my rose hair a half of a tree(an artificial arch) and she just keeps digging. is this normal? she just lays webbing and then pulls it out. is she try to dig to darkness. you can see her through the glass. i was just wondering if she was going to molt or something weird. but any information will help. i am not worried though.:?

Digging under the tree? Or just in the substrate? How many inches of substrate do you have? I have read that G. roseas will burrow on occasion...

My rosie dug out a pretty big burrow under a large rock I gave her, and expanded it in 2 directions, this was about 9-10 inches of soil. I have since moved her into another enclosure and she hasnt been digging yet, but they can.

There is no real telling why she's digging. You havn't lost a superworm in the tank or anything?

Good at least that you're not worried ;)
