This brings me back to my question. If you don't know the T is in pre-molt, and you drop a feeder in and it disappears into the moss or the webbing, then what? My C. Versicolor has this elaborate web maze around her "tree" that they will get in and I can't get to them without trashing her enclosure at that point. How much do I need to worry about that I guess is my concern here.
Aviculariinae tend to seal all the entrances to their web tubes when in pre-moult so I usually check for this before attempting to feed.

In any case, having to wreck a bit of webbing to hook a feeder out is a non-issue, they can make more. They can't regenerate from getting nommed to death though.

Dubias can harm T's?
Yes, they can.

Any feeder that cannibalises can harm your tarantula, dubia fall into that category.

‘I don’t see my T use its water dish, so it’s doesn’t need it’

So you strapped a GoPro to your enclosure to film 24 hour surveillance for 12 months then looked through all the footage?

No? Then how do you know it doesn’t use it?

Phlogius goliath is THE goliath birdeater.

Phlogius goliath is the largest T species in Australia.

Every Phlogius species is just a crassipes variant.

Adult Selenotypus are worth more than $175.

Phlogius PQ113/blue leg will 100% always have blue legs.

There are no colourful T's in Australian territory.

Ah. Not this crazy little spood. She just has a hammock she hangs out on. Then she flipped and molted. Right out in the open air.

Tarantula's going to tarantula. :rolleyes:

In the past I’ve weighed in on the pro side of the water dish conflagration, but I only have 4 T’s which is so easy I have no room to talk. But I’ve witnessed my porteri use hers. *shrug*
