There should be a couple threads on it, I'll try to find them for you, but you know you have to "pinch" handle the T to this right? Make sure the crickets are mushed up and just put it on the area where her fangs are, you'll be able to tell if she starts eating .i have never hand fed a tarantula.but i will try and i think i will use tweezers:clap: thanks Novak
Id would be careful with that. It still looks like it can walk around so unless the fangs are stuck from paralysis you might get bit trying to hand feed her. Or she will just run away from you while you try to hand feed, causing stress to a T that is already maybe sick from something.
If you can get a better camera somehow maybe borrow one and get a good picture of her fangs and mouth parts that would be really helpful, because if she has nematodes or some other parasite there is not going to be to much you can do besides wait it out and continue offering food and water every now and then.
I might be seeing things but it really does not look that small to me. every avic I have ever had never really got heavy. And to me the abdomen does not look shrivled yet.But Ryan I don't think he has any choice if he wants this T to live, it hasn't eaten for 2 months and it's abdomen is very small, so she might as well give it a shot at hand feeding it even if there might be a parasite.
Sounds good, just keep us updated.i will wait a couple more days see if she settles and see if the powdery stuff forms on her mouth again.i will try to get a better pic.
The abdomen looks exactly like my MMs did, which was small and shrivled from a vertical view.I might be seeing things but it really does not look that small to me. every avic I have ever had never really got heavy. And to me the abdomen does not look shrivled yet.
