I have always wondered why petshops generally think that tarantulas don't drink straight out of a water dish but, instead, would drink out of sponges. What gives them the idea?
I think it is reasonable to expect the average joe to know at least the fact that spiders do cannibalize.Originally posted by TypeO-
I think it's just stupidity on the pet shops part. One of the reptile guys was telling me about when they first started gettign them and put them all in one tank, with no barriers. They would coma back tomorrow and there would be only 1 left, Kinda sad how they keep the T's there.
That's what I would have thought too, apparently it's not the case here. They eventually have the tanks set up to where they have their own individual section, but it's still kind of a lousy set-up. At least I got them to change the sponges to water dishes.Originally posted by lam
