Wow thats cool. It does look a little skinny, but still, that spin is wild. Ive had a couple similar feeder grabs before, but not on film!

thats part of the allure of T's in general. i know a lot of people who got into T's becuz they saw a feeding first hand, or caught a sweet video online about their speed and precision.

thats fine an all but abit weird to buy a tarantula because it eats cool, that makes me feel like theres loads of chavs and young ppl who bought a tarantula for that reason and its being kept in a bad setup :(
and they just have no clue about what type it is what it needs... shame :(

Wonder if it's the first feed after a molt. Not sure about this person but I don't let the abdomen stay smaller than the cephalothorax for long.

I dont know why you all think thats skinny.:? Looks pretty healthy to me.

I dont like to let my Ts get HUGE due to molt, and fall complications. On a side note, that T looked pretty freshly molted(knees were really bright) so it could be first feed after a molt. But thats far from "skinny". I dont let my Ts get much fatter than that.
