    Here, i become annoyed with my tarantula because he insists on bird dogging me as I'm cleaning the glass instead of calmly moving to the other side of the cage as he normally does when I clean it.



    Again, there is some harsh language so if you're a little whiny snowflake, don't watch the video or mute it.

    Sheesh!!

    There's no reason to be nervous, if a poeci wants to teleport, its gonna happen. Fear is the mind killer. Deep breath, shot of vodka, and more curse words:D Well done, nice to see someone at least has the courage to stick their paws in the enclosure, lmao.

    It's best not to have energy drinks before maintaining cages. Usually he just calmly walks to the other side and chills out. His fangs weren't hardened up so I wasn't all that concerned, just a bit.

    I've generally found that the slower I move, the slower the T moves. I'm not interested in top speed testing!! He hasn't ever bolted before, usually just drifts over to the other side of the cage. I think he feels cramped in there or maybe still thought the decor was in the tank.
