    New group w problems

    Hi With big relailers often the advetised size is the batch average estimated size. It is a bit unrealistic to expect someone to try and measure accurately hundreds(thousands) of slings.Sometimes you get smaller sometimes you get bigger.This is how it usually works. Important bit is that they...

    Hi Where yours leave the boluses.Mine always leave them in the web.Do u put feeders in top part or just leave them on the bottom? Regards Konstantin

    You can leave the pray in for 24 hours before removing it. Don't inow but if you thong feed is a hazard as tarantula can damage their fangs on the metal or even run up the tongs and tag you. If you noticed her going down in certain areas you can move the dish in that area too Regards Konstantin
