Preparing healthy FOOD for my TARANTULAS !!! (feat. Elvarg)

  • Published: 23 September 2018
  • This video will demonstrate how I prepare food for my bug-eating animals. Known as "Gut-loading" in the hobby, it is basically filling up the feeder insects' guts with good nutrients from healthy foods, which will then be passed on to the animal that eats it. As the saying goes, "You are what you eat".. it is a practice that many recommend to do prior to feeding your beloved pet(s). Why? Many feeder insects are not often well-fed in pet stores or by suppliers (there are exceptions to this). Feeding your animal an insect that hasn't been properly gut-loaded may not provide it with the nutrients it needs to thrive in the long run.

                                Those spider senses go off immediately when the tarantulas detect motion. And every time they react, I shit my pants.

So when I was looking I heard a sound and it was crickets but I didn’t now cause I am stupid and I went over and had a panic attack cause one jumped at me and I screamed in the middle of the pet shop

                                                                  Why I am telling idk you guys don’t care 🤷🏻‍♀️
