I think my fastest eaters are the smallest ones (0.5"), it seems like they make pinheads disappear in about 10-15min. each. Of course, I could just be losing track of time too...lol.
I'll have to check it. I often wondered if different species can break them down faster or not. Seems logical since they have different venom potency levels...maybe not. Would be interesting to find out though. :?
i dont feed the big ones crix
I feed roaches
My 3" or so A. metallica ate a 1.5" discoid in about 20 mins lol
it was a 1" when i put it in the tank and it hid out somewhere and came out today and hid in this nice white mesh stuff on the celing of the tank lol but didnt notice the previous occupant till it had fangs in its back lol
My avics eat crix in like 20 minutes..with NO leftovers...which is strange.
I watch them every time and each cricket just turns into a smaller and smaller ball of goop till nothings there...are they just really hungry or...what?
it realy depends on the species...about 45-60 minutes for my p murinus to eat 3 crickets, my B smithi's eat 2 crickets (the Smithis 3") in aprox 30 minutes, my a. geraldi eats 1 large cricket in 45 minutes and my group of a. avics average about 50 minutes for 3 crickets....
