Making the tarantulas happy! My tarantula Michelle Jacqueline is too big for her tank! We bought a new Kritter Keeper, filled it with soil, put her burrow in, and celebrated by feeding her fresh crickets! My new tarantula Cleo, wild caught in Arizona, was put in a tiny tank for about a week! We did the same stuff we did for MJ. Both tarantulas are happy and have plenty room to roam!
Today I will tell you about Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches.
This is Alf. You can tell he is a boy by the bumps on his head.
This is Helen, Lil’, or Maddie. You can she is a girl because she has no bumps. [It is hard to tell the difference between the 3 roaches. Also, the photo-bomber by her abdomen is Alf or Willy.]
Today I will talk about how true spiders are different than tarantulas.
Today I am showing my Madagascar Hissing Cockroach colony. I named some Willy and Kate. I also named some Helen and Madeline. There is one bigger then all the other roaches! Her name is Lil’. [aka the alpha roach] Put down in the comments below why you think I named them this. Don’t forget to fill out my survey if you have arachnophobia!
Today I will talk about my pets and their temperaments. I missed last week’s Tarantula Tuesday due to 4th of July craziness. Don’t forget to fill out my survey if you have arachnophobia. I have a non tarantula pet. Put down what you think it is. Then watch the video to see if your right!
I am going to talk about why true spiders (araneomorphs) and tarantulas (mygalomorphs) web. I am also going to show my Arizona Blond Tarantula Rapunzel. If you have arachnophobia please fill out my survey, if you’ve already done so please pass it on to others
It is time for my girls to eat. And my Costa Rican Zebra Striped Tarantula Michelle Jacqueline is really hungry. Watch her grab a meal to go, drag it to her burrow, and spin a little silk.
