Tried to feed dubia he got pissed off grabbed roach and no clue what he did with it if he didn't kill it will it be bad if it's still in enclouse
My A chalcodes struck a cricket out of frustration after eating 3 so when they get full and don't want to be bothered they can seldomly strike a prey item. Better that than my hand :eek:.
 
@Ranger94 I'm pretty sure they burrow so I would probably try to get it. I know if you put a bit of carrot out you can get a cricket out of hiding, not sure if similar would work for Dubyas?
 
@Ranger94 I usually drop one prey item at a time and watch to make sure they catch it before I move on to the next one, because feeders (especially roaches) have a tendency to burrow and can potentially resurface during a molt in which your T is vulnerable. I also love to watch the take down as well :eek:. I found that if a feeder is left to run around it could stress your T out and get them aggy kicking mad hairs and could potentially injure themselves trying to escape. They love roaches, just make sure you clean up the bolus asap because that could fester into something nasty!
