Kryll is still learning how to eat
How are people afraid of these dumb creatures

Some of mine refuse to eat dubia. I once had a tarantula push the roach away with her foot.

This is the same dance I have to with Etta for every single feeding =_=.

I can’t help imagining how horrified and in pain from being clamped on the butt the bug is. I could never handle live feeding :C

They do not feel emotion/fear, insect/arachnid brains don’t work nearly the same way as vertebrate brains do, they can live for several days after decapitation as long as they haven’t lost too much hemolymph. It is widely believed that insects cannot feel pain since they have no nociceptors [pain receptors. an exception being the fruit fly]. They only react to physical stimulus. It’s not “pain” it is feeling, he is just simply trying to get away. Normally I don’t have to hold them for very long but this tarantula is special and if I let it go it would go and burrow in the substrate all the way to narnia.

Tarantulas should be fed live or freshly pre-killed items. A good hunk of tarantulas won’t eat already dead things. [at least none of mine won’t] Some people feed those “can-o-crickets” and I think that’s just really gross idea tbh. All of the nutrients are probably gone out of those things and they smell so bad, and you never know what leeches from the can into the crickets…

She does this with everything. Dubia, Crickets, Superworms, I even tried a pink mouse once and she was just “how do eat?”

What does your beardies like to eat?

I feed her the following as a staple food. I mix it up every other day or so so she’s not eating the same thing every day

I feed these once a week or less

I chop up everything pretty fine or use the food processor so she can’t pick through it for the stuff she likes.

The scab on the top of Eliza’s head and a better photo of her. Poor baby is shedding her face.

LIFE HACK:

DON’T, DO NOT reblog peoples’ pets with captions about hating the animals. Keep it to yourself, scroll past it, block the tag and move on. I understand that people don’t like all animals, that’s cool, but please understand that I like my animals and I don’t want to see you hating on them.

Tiny view of Eezo. Haven’t seen her out fully since the move. That’s ok though. She’s always so shy.

I’m honestly thankful that Eliza isn’t skinny as hell and weak as a kitten and doesn’t require a load of vet visits. She does need to have a checkup and probably an x-ray to make sure her insides are all ok, but that will be the next step since I honestly cannot afford that any time soon after that lice treatment and I’m slowly warming her owner up to getting her everything she needs. It’ll take some time.
