    Do tarantulas stop eating when they’re not hungry? My A. Seemani found a way into my ‘Worm Bucket’ and are 6 of them. He was a little skinny and the worms were small. Would a T keep eating until it dies? Like a fishy?

    They wouldn’t eat until they’d die, some individuals will eat until they are ‘morbidly obese’ which is dangerous as their abdomen skin is stretched very thin and it would be easy for it to rupture if the tarantula fell/got scratched.

    Your T left its cage?

    Climbed right out. He must’ve use a leg or two to hold the lid while he climbed out.

    Sounds like the pony at my barn who got out of his stall and into the feed bin! Take care to make sure your spiders stay inside their homes and don’t get out to enjoy some late night snacks. Use cage clips or make sure the lid is secured on the KK style enclosures.

    Fish won't eat and eat until they die. They will stuff themselves full, but they will then stop eating usually to no ill effect.
