My mom went to get crickets today because me and my brother's Ts have been feasting upon wax or meal worms for the last couple of days. We put five into each cage. Mine cought one then another and another. He had THREE IN HIS MOUTH!. He then got the rest of the crickets and carried them into his hide. He then laid them down and wrapped them with one or two thin strings of silk. He is standing over his bundle of bodies as if they were trophies. This is very cool because I have never actually seen my spider eat a cricket. I have seen him eat a meal worn but it is not the same. Sorry for those of you who I have wasted atleast 2 mins of ur life. This is so EXCITING!

Your spider isn't by chance an A. geniculata is it?
