Hey everyone, was wondering if anyone on the boards ever noticed their spiders slowing down, not from pre molt but during their most active phase when they are still hungry. What I mean is that they aren't as outgoing and won't actively seek out their prey. For example, my juvenile female T. stirmi used to go crazy every time I would drop prey in her enclosure but now she just waits in her den and doesn't pursue the crickets, she waits for them to come to her. It's just a little less exciting when I feed cause I don't get to see her come out. My female A. geniculata also has these tendencies but I have been feeding them rather heavily so I guess they simply aren't as hungry. Should I lay off on the feeding for a couple weeks ? Will their hunting drive return?
