    Injured Tarantula

    I have "tried" saving many stung spiders in the past. The spider doesn't need to start eating until it's moving around alot on its own. This could be months down the road. Just water for now.

    Injured Tarantula

    ICUs for tarantulas are a joke. Stuffy humid environments for spiders are not a good thing. Many arid tarantulas like the one you have do not do good in wet stuffy environments. A clean container with some substrate is all you need.

    Feeding it will cause another set of problems including mites. Just water is all it needs for now.

    S. calceatum and H. maculata

    I've got females of both. Super secluded spiders. When they are out they blend in so well you don't even recognize them. Speed wise they may be faster then a Poecilotheria but not as fast as a Pseudoclamoris gigas. Both are highly recommended but for none skittish people only.

    20+ yr old Chilean Rose Moult?

    Yes, I've found Grammostola and Alphonopelma like to roll the ball around. Some Brachypelma/ Tliltocatl do too but it's hit and miss with individuals. Theraphosa and Lasiodora toss them out like trash/bolus, they don't want them around. Poecilotheria throw them out of their hides/ cork tubes but...

    T stirmi help

    Your hide needs to be covered with substrate. Theraphosa stirmi are heavy bodied and their abdomen often drags on the ground. Your hide is too rough for a spider that comes from the soft jungle floor.

    20+ yr old Chilean Rose Moult?

    Euathlus (Brachypelma) smithi and Theraphosa stirmi. 1982 sir, one of the first Theraphosa stirmi in the U.S. Both spiders were given to me to take care of by a local college for the summer. At the end of the summer they had new speciems and said I could keep them. I was 10 years old at the time.
