    Always so excited to see your C elegans- I have a tiny sling I named Care Bear and (s)he is one of a trio of my first ever tarantulas! I absolutely love watching the teeny tiny antics of my baby T buddies. I'm excited to see what the adult form will be, because the slings are eeny teeny tiny, so I think it will be a while before they graduate from their bitsy burrows lol.

    do ALL spiders molt?? just curious cuz am keeping a cave orb weaver in a container (my first ever spider, found locally) ... apparently, they are only small things and from what I gathered online only lives like 18 months or so but I kept this one for the hell of it and feed it flies and rollie pollies when I can. in the photo you can see it eating/guarding the rollie pollie it found in the container. I actually was surprised to see this cuz when the cooler winter temps came the rollie pollies I had in there disappeared for a long time. I assume they buried themselves in little dirt I had in a container and for some reason, one just came out the night before and the next morning the orb-weaver had it hoisted high off ground in the middle of nowhere and has been on it now for like two days now. I do have a few more rollie pollies for it for later in winter in another container which will have to do till spring cuz I don't have anything else to feed it in winter months around here, especially for such a small thing... I guess this will be a learning experience for me. so anyways, do ALL spiders molt, or is it really just something bigger spiders do ??

    Okay wow :D my insta comment shown on a video of yours, the video is about the Cyriocosmus elegans my favorite Dwarf Tarantula species which was my very first pet Tarantula that i got because of your videos and the massive information that you spread with the years so far💖 so when this isn't a lucky day for me i don't know which would 🤪 (my first elegans adult female got sick and unfortunately died relatively fast after i got it😢 after that i adopted 2 very very very small slings- 0.5cm leg span, raise them to about 2cm legspan at the moment💖- and within a year i got 7 more tarantula species 5 slings and 2 adult females 💖💖) Keep up the good work, i really enjoy your content and you as a person :D hopefully in the future i would be able to visit the newnew DarkDen 😍

    Repitles rarely are big enough to hold humans. But i get what you mean. Their kind of like holding a rough leather belt.... I know it sounds unkind but its the best description. I have my own Panther Camelion like Felix. His name is Ace. His skin isnt as rough. Hes like holding a baby person.
