My 2" metallica has not been eating for 3 weeks now. Should I worry?
yes agree, I didnt see my Phormictopus cancerides, ones for almost 2 mo, then she molted, then after 2 weeks start eating and and back to normalThe only time to really worry about a tarantula not eating is if its abdomen is getting noticeable smaller in size or it appears shriveled. Otherwise, there isn't much to worry about. Poecilotheria spp. aren't known to be extremely long faster but it isn't unusual for them to go a month or so without eating.
