Spiderling Prey feeding?

Post by Scott Nichols » Thu, 30 Jul 1998 04:00:00



In addition to the H. maculata I got today I also got a baby Lasiodora
parybana. It is only 3/4 legspan. I was wondering what all you breeders
feed them.  I tried to feed it a small mealworm (the smallest I could find
in my bowl) and it won't eat it. The mealworms are about the diameter of a
pencil tip. Not very big at all but the spider must feel threatened by it.
Oh and anyone know how fast this species grow. I'm sure pretty fast.

Hi,

     You could also try feeding it dead *** crickets (I usually chop off
their heads, and midsections).  My spiderling L.parahybana loves these, its a
pretty good way to power-feed them.

Hope this helps,
Nick Powers

Do you have a microscope Scott,
How about daily length measurements of cephalothorax, abdomen and a  leg to
see how much growth occurs between and immediately after moultong.

No I don't have scope yet. I tried to get a used dissecting stereoscope
from my college last semester with no luck. But I'll try again this
semester. But that would be an extremely good way of determining growth.
But I can always do that later when I get a scope. Just order another
spiderling.
