Hi. My A. seemani molted I think around Sun. I don't know for sure which day. It was a sneak attack!
So she devoured her molt. Yes, I named her Rascal for a reason.
Sooo she's around 1.5". She's still hanging out in her T cave. She has a full water dish, but since she's eaten her blasted molt, do I offer her cricket or not, prekilled? I can't see her fangs even with a flashlight.
Thanks.

For the record, they can't eat their molt. They can tear it apart, bury it, and incorporate it into their webbing... but they can't eat it. Tarantulas can't eat solid foods, and an exuvia has no liquids at all.

Thanks for your help and keep them vids coming!
