I've seen tons of contradictory information on this subject. On the one hand, a lot of people claim that mice, which contain tons of calcium, can make a tarantula's exoskeleton harder and stop it from being able to molt properly. But I've also seen people claiming that tarantula and scorpion exoskeletons don't contain calcium, and that the calcium thing is a myth altogether. Additionally, on all the Theraphosa (Goliath) caresheets I've seen, it's recommended that you give your Goliath a mouse every few weeks. What gives?
