Advertisement I have a MM LP that has a really weird eating habit that I was hoping someone could shed some light on for me. He has not molted in almost 2 months and his abdomen is bald. I thought he was in pre-molt because if I put a cricket in the tank he wouldn't bother with it. One day I happened to accidentally drop the cricket on top of the tarantula and it went right after it and ate it. So after this happened I noticed that if a cricket walks right under it, or beside the T, it won't bother with it, but if I periodically drop it directly on it's front legs it will eat it. Anyone know why it is doing this?
