    I have a small plastic container id say 5”x6” and 2 slings T. albopilosums probably 3/4-1”. Is that container too big or will it be fine? I dont have a lot of options besides using an old spice container about the same size as the containers in this vid.

    Slowly getting over my serious fear of spiders and similar creatures. Your videos have been part of my exposure therapy process. I still dont want to be near one or touch one. But i can now watch videos of live ones and not have bad anxiety. Thank you for what you do, for caring about animals, and treating all so kindly. I think i will stick with my dog instead of a tarantula, but will keep watching videos!

    Taking care of small Ts is so weird because they need so much extra care and die so easily. My really small N.Chromatus (it was like 1cm) died during molt last week. The second Time this has happened to me.

    Can I ask one thing if it's possible? Firstly its my first comment on your channel, and want to say thanks for the awesome content! Secondly, (and the question) when you are doing a video feeding slings and you name them, could you possibly put a small picture of what it looks like as an adult? As I'm fairly new ish to the hobby and on the lookout for some awesome looking T's is all 👍

    Curious why you keep your spiders in such small enclosures? Im no spider expert hence the question, the only reason i ask is because i caught a wolf spider about the size of the spiders in your small capsules. However i read that she needs an enclosure closer to the size of a 5 gallon pale, i keep her in essentially a medium of the two (about as big as your roach container.) With lots of open space for her to run and climb but i still felt it was small. Just curious for your opinion should i upgrade to a bigger enclosure just because of her species or is the one i have big enough.

    I was wondering if you have a Linothele Fallax ( Tiger spider {curtain web weaver}) - Truly a beautiful Tarantula and Never! fails to eat for me and is insanely fast and makes the most wonderful webs - drop a cricket anywhere on the web and you will see her run super fast and get it. if so can you show it in an upcoming video and talk about it? can't find much info or videos about it. If you do not. GET ONE! it's amazing! Great video as always and looking forward to all the next ones!

    While they're eating they do a lil dance! I just looked it up and a theory is that they're using their spinnerets to lay down webbing so they can still sense vibrations while feeding.

    Got a little problem with my c. Versicolor, maybe someone can help. When I got her, she was pretty tiny and I've tried to keep her in these typical small sling cups. Well, she always ran out of it as soon as I opened it so we rehoused her into a bit bigger cup. She loved it and didn't try to escape anymore. Well, she has molted a few times and kinda outgrew that space so I rehoused her again about a month or two ago. This time, it's a front opening door, not something that opens on the top. But kinda the same thing happens, that did in that first tiny cup. At first, she build a net and molted in there once. But after that, about 2-3 weeks ago, she again, started to walk around the entire time and get out, within a few seconds, when I open the enclosure. She also destroyed her net and bit holes in it. If anyone knows, what to do, please help, because she's making me crazy. It's pretty hard, to get her back into the enclosure.

    It's the baby tarantulas that creep me out the most. When they're grown up I can handle that but when they're little they look like little normal house spiders like American and English house spiders oh yeah and Wolfies...those sons-a-bitches scare the cr outta me... I still haven't gotten over my fear those things. Big fluffy tarantulas are cute. Those little tiny baby tarantulas are creepy
