FEEDING   YOUR   TARANTULA

LIVE PREY

Most keepers recommand feeding your taantula appropriate sized live prey. Appropriate-size prey are about 1-half the size of the spider's body. If you give prey that are defenceless nad cannot harm your spider, then the prey can be larger.

BUYING PREY ITEMS:

Most suitable prey animals can be found in any petshops, baitshops that sell exotic animals. If you have a large number of spiderlings, or an extensive number of adults to feed, it may be more worth while breeding your own food animals. This ensure a steady supply of prey at various stages of size. None of these food items are tough to breed.

DEAD FOOD

Tarantulas prefer live food than dead ones. However, you can decieve them into eating dead food. One way is to plaster some meat into a small ball and dangle them infront the spider with a strand of string. Often the tarantula will percieve the movement and sieze the food as if it were live prey.
