    Prized catch.jpg

    Today was feeding day and this gal surprised me by completely ignoring the roach I offered her, ran down my arm, and plucked the largest roach out of the feeder cup. She then placidly walked back into her enclosure and feasted. She is now my favorite. (Hyllus diardi)

    Good Morning, So I was walking through one of the local pet stores the other day not looking for anything and left with a Red Knee. My wife hates me right now!! This is the first T. I have owned and I have been searching for T. info so I have a few questions that I know one of the many experts...

    C. Versicolor sling feeding

    Hi everyone about a month ago I got a c versicolor sling. It is probably 1/4-1/2 an inch. My issue is it won't eat anything besides flightless fruit flies which I've come to learn have very poor nutritional value. I've tried dubia legs, dubia nymphs, pieces of mealworm, a small live mealworm...

    Help! I fed my avic. metallica directly after her molt!

    I was just feeding my avic metallica a small roach and accidentally dropped it in her web & when I looked in I realized there was a fresh molt in there! I panicked because I know if she attempts to eat before her fangs harden, that could be potentially fatal. Her web is shaped kind of like a...

    Old-world not eating

    On either the 15th or the 16th of December, I got a few more Ts to add to my collection, and one of them happened to be my first old-world, a female Cameroon Rust Baboon (Hysterocrates gigas). Evidently I'm aware of how aggressive and stubborn they are, as well as how reclusive their nature is...

    Unsure when to feed my A. Chalcodes.

    Hi! 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...
