Advertisement Like, I don't know if this is a dumb question but I was given a tarantula today by a family who just didn't want him. His cage is small for his size (at least it looks like it. I don't know if it is). I am pretty sure he is going to molt soon when I saw a huge black beetle my friend said I needed to get it out because it could hurt the T. I know I scared the daylights out of the T though. It was chilling on it's web and when I went to get the bug the T just ducked into the corned. :/ I don't know if I should have just left it? Have I jeopardized his molting process at all?
