- Fort Myers, FL
She (I think it's actually he but the kids insist on she) belonged to an in-law who had raised her from a sling, but they sadly passed away a week ago. So here I have received the tarantula who hadn't been taken care of for 3 weeks. We don't have any "before" pictures, but the tank was full of junk, like leaves and stuff, and completely webbed over. Once I cleaned it out I found a molt tucked underneath everything, which smelled pretty bad. I cleaned everything out, removed the web, and gave her a superworm to eat. I know spiders don't really show expressions and all, but she seems a lot happier now. She's pretty skittish but hasn't tried to shoot poo at me yet. We got her a 5 gallon tank to move her to when she's done eating, and I'm honestly a little excited.
