"I have had my t.blondi, Dave, for a few months now. She's got a legspan of about 3 inches. she's always so scared of me, and always hides from me. I keep the tank incredibly humid and the temperature is usually between 18 and 30, depending on the heat of the day, is it dangerous that it gets that low? I keep her food in the tank with her also, as I thought this is how it would be in the wild. But I've read "over feeding" them is bad. I don't understand why since she only eats when she's hungry, and isn't that how it would be in the wild? tho there's been a huge cockroach in there for about 2 weeks now, and a small one too at the same time. She doesn't eat em, :s. I was told i should gently rub her back legs when she's pissed off to calm her down, tho she just has no reaction to it. Tho when I use a stick to do it, cus I think she's gonna try to bite me again, she usually moves or goes into attack pose. does anyone know how often she is supposed to molt?? its been a month since she molted a month after i got her. also how bad is it that i use a torch to see her in her burrow? she has no reaction to it but i read somewhere that they dont like bright lights. i think im doing things wrong but i just want to look after her.. >.< my first tarantula, tho i kept a huntsman before her. any advice is welcome."
