She was purchased in February 2001 at the Proctorville flea market by Mr. James' father for his 22 birthday in March of that year.
Her hobbies in her youth included climbing the walls and ceiling of her terrarium and spinning simple webbing on her bedding. In her older years, she enjoyed not moving for days and creeping out Mrs. James.
Some of her favorite foods were baby mice, crickets, camel crickets, and cicadas. She especially liked eating these delicacies after fasting for several months and molting.
Burial will be whenever the ground thaws out in the James' family back yard.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the World Wildlife Fund's efforts to save her vulnerable homeland, the Atacama Desert.
Here is a pic of her after she molted last October:
