    After years of saving Arizona Tarantulas from Pepsis Wasps I Finally made a VIDEO of one going back to freedom. Do any of you do the same?

    I use to try saving them but they never really fully recover. I stopped doing it and let nature run its coarse.

    I have a complete process for the recovery. When I bring them in I start them on 1 drop of RO water 3 times a day with exercise on all 8 legs (2 at a time) with Ozone blowing over them. I keep this up until I see that they can walk with the body lifted and have an interest in food (whatever moth or cricket I find) then I see if they are up to speed. This takes about 2 to 3 months. If it is still warm enough outside, I take them out for "walks" each day to see how they are doing, then let them go.
