I have a 1 1/4 inch a. avic sling who's been doing great so far, but in the last half hour or so, it started to chew on the pedipalp and front two feet on it's right side. Now he's chewing on the back leg, same side. He seems healthy, all of his legs look fine. Is this normal?

What Kristal said, this is how Tarantulas groom themselves.

No prob, if it makes u feel any better, lmao, I freaked out when I first saw my rose hair (gave her to my lil bro a few months ago) doing that with its feet....I was on the phone with any one I could get to listen at the pet store, lol, but of course, they didnt know what it was doing either! some help they were, lol..
I finally asked someone on atshq.com and they filled me in on what was going on so I could sleep medicine. Take care
