I purchased a 3" legspan salmon pink birdeater Saturday off CL and it appears to be rather overfed. I know they are fast growing spiders that get large but its abdomen is 2-3X larger than its carapace. What suggestions do you have for its best care and return to normal dimensions. I have halted food but what intervals and amounts are suggested for its diet to correct the overfeeding. Any other ideas are welcome as for cage housing. It can't climb more than 4 inches so falls onto vermiculite won't be too much of a problem.
