So, going from my beautiful Cobalt to this species, I've noticed I can't tell when she wants to eat!
I've only found her in the 'murder time' pose once, otherwise I'm unable to really tell when she's hungry.
Anyone have any definitive signs they use? I just toss some dubias in there, but...
I had a question about varying tarantula diets. Ive heard some people will catch wild insects to feed to their t's as a means of increasing diet variety. Is this a good idea? My T's live off a staple of dubias, with crickets and mealworms sprinkled in now and then. Should I be doing more to vary...
Hello all, relatively new to the hobby, got my first T about 18 months ago, but first time sling owner.
I've got an adult striped-knee, and previously had a pink-toe who, unfortunately was lost to a molting accident, so I tend to get nervous around molts, especially any of my babies first one...
So I tried to feed my Brachypelma albopilosum (Curly hair tarantula) today for the first time. This is my first spider, and the gal at the pet store said he will eat twice a week, mealworms. I dropped one in and all that is happening is my spider is basically trying to escape the mealworm (which...
How often should or can I feed my sling?
Its a p.cambridgei and has eaten every 2 days since I got it. Super quick to come and snatch a cricket everytime. Lord knows I wouldn't want to over feed or cause any issues or molding in the enclosure due to uneaten crickets.
My T has molt 1 week ago. I also see that the fang is already black. But his upper mouth is still reddish brown.
I asked the seller if i should feed him or not, and he answered yes.
At first, my T seems he interested to catch the crickets. He chased it. Later, the crickets fell down...
Maybe it's a dumb question but i still concern to ask..
Should i feed my B. Albo when he's in premolt? Here's how he looks like now.
Lately, he likes to move around near the dish. Sometimes he put his leg inside the dish. The humidity is around 80%-90% inside the enclosure...
I just woke up from my nap and i felt like have a really massive gut feeling to check my B. Albopilosum. And this is what i found! A tarantula drinking from his dish! You can see his fang on the dish :D
Hello everyone :)
Today is the 3rd week since i have my T and since he arrive, he ate 1 mealworm and 4 crickets.
My concern is when he ate mealworm, i can find a corpse ball (or bollus?) of the mealworm inside the enclosure. And i already took it out.
He ate 4 crickets from 2 weeks ago. Like...
After one week my Tarantula didn't eat anything, this is the first time he ate cricket.
2 days ago, i gave him cricket. The cricket didn't move or walk inside the enclosure and my T didn't touch the cricket so yesterday morning i took out the cricket and put it back to his jar...
I just give my T cricket. But he seems like he just chill around and didn't catch the cricket.
My T is 7cm juvenile. The cricket is about 2cm.
Does the cricket size is perfect for my T?
I also attached picture of my T and the cricket.
