    My Acanthoscurria geniculata may be a ravenous murdertank, but he drinks with delicate grace.

    If he isn't in pre-molt, he attacks anything that moves.

    Besides not being mistaken for food, using tongs reduces exposure to urticating hairs. (He isn't a flicker, but he does shed them onto his substrate, especially during pre-molt.)

    In the second picture she looks like she's saying ' what? Never seen a tarantula drink before?'

    I'm not sure if he was drinking or just derping in his water dish.

    Squirt (Psalmopoeus cambridgei)
    @cold blood As soon as I started filling her water dish, Squirt climbed into the dish and started drinking. (She even let me finish filling the dish by pouring the water between her legs.)
