This little Grammostola Sp. took 27 minutos to overcome its prey. I only kept holding the camera because she was continuously bitting. I made a video clip including mostly bite atempts and actual bites. There are only about 4 replays at the beggining of the video, all the rest are shots from diferent hits.

Translation fo the credits in the beggining:

This battle took 27 minutes.
This video is a short cut with the best moments.
Grammostola species
and the mealworm...

yeah that was a pretty large meal, anytime i give them something thats larger than them (usually out of necessity) i kill it first. Or at least crushed its head where its still twitching but not dangerous

Ha, I love watching slings taking down bigger prey. It's very interesting and amsusing. Of course, as long as it can't hurt them, which I don't think a meal worm could. It won't need another meal for days or even weeks lol.

PS: nice choice in music.
