The thing is, if people are making videos about tarantula care, or any animal care, they need to be sure that they’re doing everything as correctly as possible, or willing to address all of their previous problems within the next video or put some sort of update as they should know their viewers will try and copy them. Some of his animals lack water dishes, enough substrate, appropriate sized enclosures, and now the whole tongs thing is a even bigger problem. They should be doing research before stating any information as it should be implied that their fans will be following them/listening to them religiously. And yes there are worse youtubers out there, but he has a huge following and I’m just worried about some idiot smashing their tarantula with a pair of tongs after watching the videoI don’t think he is a bad guy, just severely remiss in understanding his audience and what they will take away from watching him do stunts like the tweezer thing. I did feel really bad when his T. seladonia died. He does care about his animals even if he is misguided at times like this.
Tl, Dr: There are worse Youtubers than Petko.
