Comments & ID Thoughts

I found it on the road it looked dead. It does not move much but if i jiggle the box around it will run like a MF other than that it stays harmless. What does it eat? How venomnous is it in a scale from 1-10

That looks a lot like a tarantula. Their bites are usually around as bad as a bee sting, and they can eat crickets or cockroaches. What a nice find, I hope they do well.


Yes, many tarantulas aren’t very active as they are lay and wait predators. My own tarantula comes out of her hide a few times a week, usually only when she’s hungry. And female tarantulas are usually much more stocky and heavy bodied than the males, so you might have a female too! Congrats 🙂
