    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...

    Wild feeding?

    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...

    G. Pulchra Pre-molt or just living her best life?

    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...

    sling feeding

    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.

    Should i feed him?

    Hello :) 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...

    Feeding when premolt?

    Hello :) 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...

    Can't find bollus?

    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...
