      Aragog playing with his food.

      He seems really annoyed by the 2 cricket I put in with him. Normally he eats them as soon as they come close enough or ignores them. So I thought I would tape and see what you think. Also at 1min in he throws the cricket at a wall.

      He was definitely stalking. The cric looked a little big. He may have decided it was too big to tackle. To me the 1 minute mark looks like he grabbed it but the cric kicked away.

      He has already taken them that big. But if he want to be picky I will find a smaller one.


      Edit**
      You cant see it really well but their is a much smaller one that he is ignoring.

      I saw that. The other cric was not moving, so it did not seem to draw the Ts attention, while the other one was just bumbling around like a nut.

      I'm no expert, but from my experience it pretty much looked exactly as Schoolman described.

      As for him taking some that large already, my Chaco was the same way. He'd try to take on anything in his tank. I was inexperienced and I know now that I gave him to large of crickets in the beginning(small as the pet store had). Once he even took on a huge cricket, pulled it's leg off, ate the leg, then went to get the rest of the cricket. Those little spiders are tough and they'll go for it, but it's not good to give them crickets that are too large.

      Well he has 2 cricket less then half his size and he is hiding in the corner of his hide now. They were walking all around him and even under him and he just ignored them.
