I chanced upon this quite a while ago, and remembered it and happily managed to find it again. Hands down one of my favourite feeding clips

I know some of you will hate the enclosure and the tong feeding. I totally get that but it's still a great feeding clip and worthy to be shared!

One of my geniculata is just as voracious. I tried to feed her this morning but she just kept jumping at the lid of the enclosure everytime I tried to open it!

I'm going to have to get one of my own of these magnificent beasts. It's funny but I often think my boldest 1" albopilosum will grow up to exhibit some of the food aggressive behaviours genics' like yours are known for. I wouldn't dare put my fingers anywhere near this tiny takedown champ. When I start opening up the lid, it rushes towards the disturbance, where the others scurry in the opposite direction (unless that just shows it's stupid lol) It's become a very firm favourite. So it's the next best thing I have to a genic sling, but I really want one of these black and white natural born killers!

Nothing wrong with the enclosure. Tong feeding...its cool and badass, I get it. But once you have to nurse a tarantula you'll never forget it.

True. I have a personal preference for slightly roomier enclosures, as in 2-3 body dls each way but that's just me. It's not necessary. I have to admit I do love to see a good off the tongs feeding, but when I learnt of tarantulas fangs being broken I decided I wasn't going to chance it.
I saw a clip the other month of someone handfeeding their t and it didn't exactly go well lol

Every day is a good day with s genic in it. Even better when the genic is as feisty as that one. love it.
