i do aswell,some will eat right up to the molt,if yours is still eating then feed him/her,when they stop,that's the sign of a molt(most likely),never good to really stuff them either. good luck with yours.Thanks for the reply!
Do you do that as routine, feed until refusing food or just in this situation?
The abdomen is not too big, I am actually worried of not feeding enough, 2 crickets twice a week. Roughly 2 inch blondi.
Thanks.Two crickets per week for a 2 inch blondi should be plenty I would think. It would depend on the size of the crickets. If your really worried, just post a photo and I'm sure everyone can give you some feedback. In general, most of my T's will feed up to within a week or two of molting. Depends on the T and how large it is. Some of my slings will eat the day before molting sometimes. My adult A. hentzi won't eat for about 3 weeks before a molt.
Like the other person said, only two crickets a week is probably better. You pretty much cannot starve a tarantula, they can go months or even years without food. Don't mistake "instantly pounces on food" as thinking they're starving--they're just instinct-driven predators, if they're not in pre-molt, they attack things.I am actually worried of not feeding enough, 2 crickets twice a week.
