They will hang out on mom's back for a week or so. After that they will start dispersing and molting. Once they do that, they start chowing on each other. I put all but 5 of mine back in the wild. The 5 I keep in small deli-serve cups on some damp eco earth. Once a week I moisten the substrate and drop in a squished roach nymph about as big (or bigger) than the sling's body. Mine have molted several times and are about 1/2" leg span.

When feeding / watering, place their enclosure inside a larger enclosure. They are skittish and will jump out of their cup and are hard to catch.

You'll find them to be ferocious little f*^%#%rs when it comes to food.
