What in the world


Tarantulas are incredibly vain. They can spend hours cleaning themselves. My LP spent literally hours licking each leg and pedipalp.

I love watching tarantulas to groom themselves. They're extremely pedantic what comes to keeping fangs, chelicerae, tarsal claw tufts, and scopula pads clean.
Though, they must be - Infected mouth area would be a death sentence and one cannot simply climb with unclean scopulae :D
