Nom nom nom
Why are you staring at me?! Cant you see I'm eating.
I have to wonder if spiders are capable of having a food preference based on ‘taste’, or if their senses are too basic for that...
 
@Bree24 I also want to know bout that. I try to give my Ts a bit of different insects and worms just to make 'em "taste" something different.
 
@weibkreux @Bree24 The simple nematode Caenithabditis elegans seem able to taste their food (demonstrated by associative learning) so I would expect that tarantulas do as well. It may be difficult to test, however, and I would strongly suspect that any preferences had more to do with ease of eating.
