well, my rosy boa must be going to shed, he refused his thawed mouse last night....so, not wanting to waste it, I dangled it in front of my A genic....and this is the result!

Bjorg,

We could make a game out of it... :) I'm going to guess, based on the size of the mouse, that it's 2.5" body length, and about 5.25" legspan...

I wonder what we'll win?

:)

LOL...good guesses!
the legspan at last molt on 7-31-02 measured 5.5"
I fed him/her (don't know, it's an exuvia mangler) this morning at about 10am. Right now it's 245pm, and the mouse looks to be about half gone. Hard to say, since her/his back is to me, and I loaned my camera out to my neighbor.
I should have it back later this afternoon, and I'll take another pic.
This is going to be one FAT spider LOL

None of my stupid spiders except my Avics will eat dead prey. I hate it.

holley, that lil bugger may burst!
my fireleg's been slurping down pinkies for a while. they sure do produce some king sized poo's when they finish a mouse!
can't wait til my genic is big enough for some mammalian prey

Update:

well, it's now been over 8 hours, the mouse looks like a bag of liquified goo with hair ...yuck!!!
The spider is still sitting right on top of the mouse, and it's abdomen is getting fatter by the hour!
Where is my camera when I need it???!!!

I have stopped using any rodents that have hair on them.....makes a heckuva mess to clean up after the t is done....hair all over everywhere! I service/clean the rodent bins once a week so all the feeders are a week old or less. I do save a few each week to grow larger for my snakes though.
BTW, there was a TAIL LESS rat in one of the bins.....I let it grow larger and very strange to see a rat with no tail! anyone ever see this before? anyone want to see a pic? It does not look like the tail was chewed off, there is no stump or anything.....hate for it to be a feeder!
