Quite a Meal (♀ Kukulcania hibernalis)
The Grey Lady feeding on a 3.8 cm tobacco hornworm (Manduca sexta) that was ravaging our tomato plants.
@Nightstalker47 I don't have any tarantulas that are large enough to take a full-grown hornworm yet. I bet it would be funny to watch an arboreal hunt the moth, however.

The only hornworms I have come from the garden, and I wouldn't give wild-caught prey to a tarantula. (My Kuk is wild-caught, so she occasionally gets wild-caught prey.)
