Advertisement Hello! I am new in trantula keeping and just got my first tarantula, a 3in mexican fireleg (no problem with her) about 3 weeks ago and my 2nd one just arrived 2 days ago, a P. metallica sling. I tried to feed my sling a "baby" lats and it was weak when I put in the enclosure because I slightly crashed the lats with the tongs. My Pmet just ignored that lats. This morning I put again another lats she (hoping) again ignore it. Should I tong feed her? Should I take away the dead lats? I read they will eat killed insects to grow faster I worry about her. She is 1.5cm only. Thanks!
