Where are the crickets?


New Member
I am a new keeper, I have a brachypelma emilia, probably a juvenile, around 2". I have been feeding Aubergine crickets once or twice a week. I have read that I am supposed to remove the carcass after they are done, but I cannot find any. Are they being buried? Dissolved? I really don't know. Any pointers would be great. Thanks!

Thanks! I didn't realize that they could eat all of it!
yes they liquify the prey and suck it all up. What you will need to look out for and remove is spider poop. Often looks like a little ball with tiny white dots.
