Today I devised a trick to getting my Avicularia Avicularia to eat a dead pinky. I obviously thawed it in warm water. Then I placed it underneath the spiders perch where it normally hunts. Then I placed a couple crickets in the tank. The spider quickly snatched up a cricket and ate it. Then I urged a cricket on top of the mouse with a chopstick and when the spider sprang to attack it grabbed both the cricket and the mouse and ate them both.
