I have a mature male curly hair, he had stopped eating. I offered food every week but he declined, preferring to wander around looking for a mate. His abdomen was getting small and i feared that he may not be around for long.
I saw that he had grabbed a grasshopper recently, which hopefully will keep him going for a while longer.

I know the feeling. I have a MM G. porteri that hasn’t eaten in more than six months, but I still try every now and then. A G. Pulchripes that hooked out in August just ate for me tonight.

In some/ many species of tarantula when the male reaches full maturity it develops hooks on its front legs, used in mating. You can see the hooks on my G. pulchripes munching on a superworm. 32688C47-19B3-466A-8337-689FEE4A1030.jpeg
