A fossorial species means that the spider is an obligate burrower and makes its home in deep burrow it digs and spends a lot of its time hidden in its extensive underground tunnels. This is commonly refereed to as a pet hole.

This is a fast growing species that grows from around ½” to nearly 4” within 2 years with most of that growth taking place within the 1st year. Females of this species can grow up to 5” and live about 10-12 years with some claiming as long as 15 years. Males, of course, don’t grow nearly as large as the females, mature around 2 years, and usually don’t live longer than 3 or 4 years.
