Today I gave my T. her first meal and i have never had such a big grin on my face when she grabbed her food she spun a web on the floor like a dinner plate it really was amazing, and I dare say this is just the beginning of many amazing sites that i am gonna watch i cant wait and am already planning my next spider but I am not gonna rush cos I dont wanna run before I can walk.

Not in my opinion. Vertebrate feeders should only be fed to the largest Ts, but lots of people here think even they shouldn't be fed vertebrates.

Just stick to crickets and maybe some roaches or something imo.

Lots of great advice here, read around.

Also pick up the tarantula keeper's guide.

try B.dubia roaches, they are a great source of protein for T's.
