Tried feeding my Pterinochilus Murinus sling today, pretty soon after it last fed I'll admit but I've heard slings can never be to fat, anyway. I dropped the small cricket in and the cricket went in the spiders hole, I then see the spider half exit another entrance to its burrow, clearly not interested in eating. Now I have a situation where the spider isn't interested in the eating the prey item, but I can't extract the prey item without really invading it's burrow (which I would really rather not do). So is it safe to leave there? It's a pretty small sling but the cricket is a little bit smaller then it is, but I do know those little buggers have pretty strong mandibles.
