    You should NEVER pick up a scorpion by the metasoma. You're putting too much stress on it's weakest body segment. Awful husbandry.

    Lol Petko you make me laugh. I love your intros so much. Wow that second sling in the beginning was stunning the black marking on the booty gorgeous and the orange with the bluish gray so beautiful definitely my favorite of the video. That huntsman was so funny reminded me of a bunny he's like hey watch me jump so far, now you see me, now you don't lol. The new space is great I am loving the set up so much. I hope you have a great day. I can't wait to see the next video. See you soon.

    Petko, since you are not a native English speaker, I'm going to help you out. The word you're looking for is affix, or affixed when talking about attaching things to the wall. Fixate/fixated mean to have a strong (emotional) attachment to someone, or something thing. 👍

    Offf... Those tarantulas were really in dire need of rehousing, especially Sahydroaraneus raja. She was basically the same size as her enclosure. I know you were fairly busy with the new house and The Final Dark Den for past couple of months, but still, please try to make more rehouse videos, so that animals will be cared properly. Or do it off camera if taking videos reduces your willingness of making rehouses. Or/and you might want to rehouse them to slightly larger enclosures so that you will not have to make rehouses so often. Given the amount of animals you have in your care, this should really help reduce your work.

    Small English note: Fixated means an obsession. The word you should use there is affixed. You affix something to a wall, then it is affixed to the wall. Attach/attached also works in the same way. Don't mean to criticise, your English is overall great. Just offering a note to help improve it. ^_^
