If not, can they perceive noise as vibration?
My daughter did an experiment for her science class to determine which food tarantulas preferred. She offered the tarantulas a pinkie mouse (previously frozen), a wax worm and a cricket. We removed the legs of the crikcet so it would stay in the same container as the other food items in an attempt to make the food offerings somewhat equal. We simply placed a small container with each food item in it in the tarantulas tank and recorded which they ate. With the exception of one tarantula that was in a pre-molt feeding pattern (that is, not eating), all the tarantulas had no problem locating the small bowl.Valael said:As for frozen pinkies...Well, I'm not sure on that one -- has anyone ever gotten a T to eat a pre-killed pinky without dangling it in front of the T?
