    I caught a Okie brown Wednesday in Missouri and brought it back on the plane with me. Has not eaten yet but appears fine otherwise. Smallish abdomen though and I would like to fatten him up some. No signs of being a mature male at this point. Interestingly it had a fresh molt under the rock with it so it may have molted as recently as Tuesday night. What has been others experience with freshly caught A. hentzis in terms of first time it took food. I have had scorpions take food immediately but this is the first tarantula I have ever caught so no baseline to compare.

    I'd have left it there.

    It ate 2 crickets this afternoon. I guess I am on track now.
