Hey guys, tarantula Youtuber The Spiderman (and he doesn't have an AB account) uploaded a video today in which he finds an adult darkling beetle (superworm) in the enclosure of his L. violaceopes (or whatever the friggin genus is, people can't decide). He feeds said beetle to another tarantula, and the awesomeness ensues. I didn't think the fangs would puncture that easily, I especially love the part where the T tries to bite through the wing covers and there's a harsh squealing and scratching sound as the fangs grind on the shell. I would love to give one of these beetles to a big Emperor scorpion, it would be cool to see the big claws smash through the beetle's shell.
