    I have fed crickets from PetSmart to my tarantulas without issue. They're not my first choice as feeders, but if I just had one or two tarantulas, I'd probably still be feeding them crickets from...

    I don't think the feeding regimens of pet store crickets is a threat to tarantulas. (Many owners have successfully raised their tarantulas on nothing but pet store crickets.)

    That being said, pet...

    My Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens died last month (due to a failed molt), so I had an empty enclosure. When I saw this beautiful 4.5" female Brachypelma emilia at Repticon today, I knew that she had...

    I don't recall whether I've read any firsthand accounts of fangs broken on metal tongs, but I would still consider that to be a possible risk. The other -- perhaps more likely -- risk is that they...

    I just crush their heads to prevent them from burrowing. (They will still wriggle enough to get the tarantula's attention.)

    Slings can't be overfed.

    I have not kept these, but I would suggest moistening the dry side as well. That might encourage her to come out.

    It looks male to me, but I'm not 100% sure from these images.

    Ambient humidity is not as important as substrate moisture. It should be kept damp (but not sopping wet).
