    Is there anything wrong with sparingly offering food the same size or even bigger than your Ts abdomen?

    I generally stick to the rule that prey should be a little smaller, or half smaller than your tarantulas abdomen, but what about feeding larger prey, then waiting a longer time to feed them than you usually do? Like say i fed my dwarf T thats 3”, and her abdomen’s about a little under a 1”, a...

    Aphonopelma icenoglei turret

    Most likely either a mature female or male judging by how large this turret was. Could also be a brooding female tending an eggsac.

    Spoodle not enjoying her rehouse.
