We have noticed that alot of people like to keep their T's fat rumped. We don't generally plump up our T's because of the possibility of shortening the life span of the T's. There has been discussion on the subject before on other forums. Our opinion is that fat is not necessarily healthy. If a person becomes obese they run the risk of shortening their life span via heart disease, diabetes, stroke, etc. If T's are kept obese we feel this can prove detrimental to the T's. Tarantulas do not generally overeat as can be a fatality with scorps but obesity has to affect them in some adverse way. What do the rest of you think?
