I've recently got some Parabuthus Transvaalicus and Hottentotta Hottentotta slings. All of them are just 2i. I am currently powerfeeding them which means I feed them once a day. I feed them Lateralis nymphs for their first week with me but I suddenly ran out of stock. Now its been 4 days and for that 4 days, I have been feeding them mealworms. These mealworms are generally about the same length as the scorplings from claw to tail. I was wondering if there would be an instance that I will overfeed my pets? I mean coz I've read somewhere that they will stop eating when they're full. But the mealworms are like the same size as them and they eat them everyday for 4 days now.

I think you can over feed adults. I don't think you can overfeed slings. They will just mature faster. Just don't forget to remove leftovers or uneaten feeders.

Now one same sized meal worm a day, I would call that power feeding!
