Haha, I've had a few of mine eat thawed block of cod, but this...I'd suspect it's because the intelligence level of the tarantula approaches that of the pea =)Nope, it's raw. I did it with "Green Giant" frozen peas & carrots, picked out a few peas, thawed them out, and she accepted it readily. I wouldn't make it a regular thing though. How often is a T going to encounter a pea in the wild?
They obviously are designed for it coz that T dissolved it! lol If it can dissolve a cricket or cockroaches insides, it can kill a peaCome to think of it, one thing I'm not sure of is if it's a waste of good digestive juices for the T. There is no problem if the juices can just as much digest the vegetable as they digest an insect, but I doubt(! - not know for a fact) that they are designed to deal with plant matter. (That besides the obvious difference in contents of a pea and an insect.)
