    Just got my third tarantula today. It is a sub-adult female. She is just AMAZING! I love her horn too. I'll get pics if I can but she DESPISES light.

    She already webbed up a bit and has dug a bit more.

    I just fed her a smallish superworm. She took it right away, grabbed it by the back of the neck. It didn't last very long after that. At the reptile show I got her at yesterday, the sellers I bought from were feeding all of their tarantulas superworms. I guess she must have been eating them too.

    It's tricky to get feeding videos off old world tarantulas but keep trying.

    I fed her again just now. This time it was a smallish cricket. That'll probably be it for the week.

    Nice! What lens? I use a Canon Powershot SX60 HS with a Raynox DCR-250 macro lens clip-on.

    I use a 18-55mm zoom macro lens. It doesn't have a fancy name like yours :p

    Photoshop express will run right on your phone and it's a very nice photo editor.

    Inshot is a decent video editor that runs on your phone. Videoshow, which is a bit pricey, is excellent and edits videos fast to compile them after exporting.

    With these, tarantula pics and feeding videos become awesome...except for mine because they aren't that great to begin with !! ;)

    Okay. She officially ate 2 crickets and a small superworm yesterday. She doesn't even look that fat! Feeding videos will be great with her.
