Slightly disturbing if you dont like squealing like myself, but neat. I have never seen a T.blondi in action before thanks!


PS> How do you get her out of the cage when you need to switch cages or clean the cage?

Nothing fancy, just a Panasonic DV-51D. I got an incredible deal on it as it was mispriced at a local CompUSA at $199 (!). Picked up a $40 firewire card and used the basic built-in Windows XP media software to grab the DV from the camera and then Adobe Premiere to convert to DivX.

Anyway, as for the squealing, after watching my Vietnamese centipede tear the throat out of a hopper and drink its blood, this video seems tame... Yuck. (be warned, it's gross and 45MB):

(right click, save as)

Yes, but I prefer to play it a little safer than that... I don't think they're as 'used' to, or oriented to, that kind of prey as T. blondi. Maybe a big roach?

Vid Request

Invertpet,
This is kinda exciting, I've never watched live feedings except for Peso taking down a cricket. Could you put up any avic vids you have, and the B.Smithi because the next T i buy will either be a versicolor or a smithi. Thanks!
Do you have any anole feedings on video?

Okay, after actually watching the movie, i've changed my mind: post ALL of the videos. That was the coolest things I have ever seen.
