It just feels weird in the mouth.
I'm raising two L.parahybana slings. Both started as 1/2” sling, one is currently 3”+ and was recently rehoused into an intermediate enclosure. The 2nd sling is currently ~1.5” and is housed in a 4X4X4 AMAC box.
They're great eaters but the response on how they catch, bounce, or kill prey is entirely random. If they're hungry, they'll go for the prey, so don't expect this amazing feeding response when feeding. Some days the feeding responses are greater or more entertaining than other days. But I wouldn't expect an amazing feeding response every time I feed a T. whether a it is a species that is a great eater or not. So your answer: just let it eat if it's hungry.
Really?? You got a broken A geniculata then. Mine are nuts, even as 1/4 inch slings tackle crickets nearing an inch.I have a range. I have a GBB that is supposed to be a heavy webber and aggressive eater. He is neither of those things. My A. genic, supposedly a murder machine, really doesn't jump on pray. He more meanders over to the general area and waits for the pray to get close.
So even when you have species with a strong feeding response, each T is different and don't always fit the mold.
