So i know about taking out un eaten prey items. But have never really seen post about what happens after a T does feed. I cant seem to find anything in the enclosure and feel i may be missing something or it might be burying waste? Has any one got any photos of what to look out for? Finished prey items/poop ect?

Thanks

A bolus is usually a ball uneaten parts of the feeder. Poop, best thing I can compare tarantula poop to is bird poop. You'll see it on the sides of the enclosure and in the water dish mainly. Spot cleaning as needed is all that is necessary. Very rarely is a full cleaning ever needed, and by rarely I mean, unless you have an outbreak of some kind, then there is no need to do a full cleaning.

So am i right in thinking that my juvi t.vagans could be rolling his waste up in the substrate? And that thats the reason im over looking it

Also could the ball just inside the cork bark to the left be this bolus?

Thanks. Will they build up a collection then put them out in the open like that or will they do it after every feed per say?
