I am a first time T owner and I just got a 3/4-1 inch T. vagans sling this week. I gave it a pinhead b. lateralis and it took it. However, the next day I was looking for the remains just to make sure it actually ate it and it was nowhere to be found. The T spends most of it's time out in the open, I actually haven't seen it use it's hide yet and it hasn't made any burrows that I can see so I don't know what it did with it. Is it normal to not be able to find any boluses? Or maybe it's too small and I just missed it. Like I said I'm new to the hobby so all of this is unfamiliar. I wasn't sure if I should be concerned or not. Thanks in advance!

If the spider took it, it's dead. There isn't much left of a runner nymph after a sling is done with it. It's probably just mixed in there with the sub somewhere. Don't sweat it.

the boli left from a pinhead B. lateralis nymph is pretty darn small, it probably is just hard to spot and blends into the substrate.

The bolus left from an appropriately sized prey item for a sling will be so small that you probably wouldn't even be able to spot it if it was left in plain sight as it'd just blend into the surrounding substrate.
