    Just got my Idiosoma Trapdoor spider today. The package was very well packed even put a bag of cool gel to keep her chill while in transit. Thought she was dead as she buried herself upside down with all her legs curled up. So I dropped 2 lived crickets in the container, but she caught and and ate them all! She looks very healthy. Highly recommended and will order more species from Bug Frenzy again soon.
