yall think my 6 inch t.stirmi would eat a super worm beetle
Why not feed it the super worm?
Keep the beetle and get more and breed superworms while you're at it if you like lol
because i found one in her tank that is a pupa and i want go know if shell eat it
Yes when it emerges I don't see why it wouldn't eat it if its going to be running around its enclosure
I’ve heard that the beetles are never eaten by Ts because they emit a foul smelling odor like “stink bugs” when threatened.
I regularly feed them to my tarantulas. They don’t move much, so larger T’s don’t have their prey response triggered. However, if you drop them very close they get snagged right away. I use them particularly for specimens that are a bit stand offish initially. When they investigate the pupa it will generally wiggle a bit which triggers the feeding response. My G. pulchripes juvie and my LP sling really seem to like them. I have never had any of my T’s turn one down. What’s not to like? They are like super-worm gummies.
Yes, adequately sized tarantulas can and will eat the larvae, pupae, and beetles if you offer them.
As a matter of fact, here is my B. hamorii this very evening grinning from “ear to ear” with a mouthful of pupal goodness. Sorry for the substandard quality, but it was doing the happy dance.
