      Worried T ate after a molt?

      Hello, I'm worried about my T I put a mealworm in its enclosure earlier today and just discovered it molded and the worm is now gone, would he even be able to eat it in the post molt state? Would it break his fangs? Or would he know not to eat it? Could he have eaten before molding? I did the usual routine, food every other day didn't think anything of it, next thing I know he's out crawling around a lot brighter than when he went to hide in his log, I've heard a lot of different things, I'm just worried I may have lost my first T. If someone could help and tell me what to look for it would be much appreciated.

      Are you sure it didn't burrow?

      It may have, I'm a worrier, I'll poke around and see if I can find it. Hopefully it just burrowed.

      You should always crush the heads of mealworms to prevent them from burrowing or biting your tarantula.

      Ok, Thank you for the info, I never even considered that, I usually cut them in half for my spiderlings. I like this forum nobody condescends for a mistake or anything like that, I'll feel bad enough if I hurt the little fella.

      It sounds like the new exoskeleton is hardening normally. (A tarantula's coloring actually looks best during this time.)

      Glad to know things are looking good.

      What kind of T is it?

      We would love to see pics of your little one.
