A giant weta would be likley to turn the tables on the spider, they're quite predatious from what I understand!Originally posted by genious_gr

A T.Blondi would really appreciate such a treat......
yes indeed!, if they are hungry they feed on eachother also, i've read somewhere, so it's not exactually a feeding insect, i do love T's but the idea of a Weta atacking a spider i find ;PA giant weta would be likley to turn the tables on the spider, they're quite predatious from what I understand
do you mean the Giant Weta or the Wellington three Wetas, Some UK dealers did offer Wellington three Wetas for sale recently , i passed because i tought they were way to expensive!I wish we could legally get those here
Breeding them is hard and keeping them is harder still. I would say let them go but if you wanna try I got some info for you. They live under things and make deep burrows. They usually come up when its warm or if the ground gets too soggy. They eat plant roots, food and water for them. They also eat some other bugs and will probably eat some other vegetations and food. You should experiment. They like high humidity and warmth I'm not sure but they live where I live so 60-80 is great. Um, if you touch them they roll up kinda and there spikes one their feet if you touch them will stick to your hand. They will turn around and bit you. Little ones kinda hurt, big ones like my 2 incher, trust me don't get bitten hurts like crap. Feels like getting pinch but 2x the fun. I kept some but they either get away in my house or they die. I don't feed them to my pets....they seem to fear them for some reason....Originally posted by Paladin
how do u keep those jerusalem crickets? i find them every once in a while but dont wanna take it home cuz im afraid it'll just die. Last time i caught two, the bigger of the teo ended up eatting the smaller one so im thinking theyre somewhat predacious? i dunno
