Hey, i was woundering if it was possible for a tarantula to fear live food, if it was raised from a sling eating dead stuff, never having to catch anything. I know it's in thier nature to catch prey, but if they were raised without ever having to catch thier prey as a sling, would they fear live food as they grow bigger? I just got a new GBB sling and scince it was born it has always been fed dead stuff, now she is 1" and i put crickets in there smaller then her and she runs away scared, or just not wanting to eat, the person who sent her to me said she molted maybe 1-2 months ago, could it just be shes getting ready for a molt? Could a tarantula become custom to eating dead stuff and fear live food? Just woundering.
