Advertisement Is it possible to overfeed your tarantula? My Acanthoscurria Geniculata (Brazilian Whiteknee) eats like I starve the damn thing. Everytime I drop a couple of crickets in her cage they are dead and consumed by the next morning. If they even hit the ground. lol. Are they smart enough to realize enough is enough before they explode? I am not trying to powerfeed my T but for an experiment I wanted to see her if she knew what her limit was and apparently 15 crickets in one week still wasn't enough. I know that 5-6 crickets a week is enough for her but has anyone ever had their T split open from eating too much? I don't want to hear about hearsay and myths but have you actually had it happen to you?
