I am trying to get my curlyhair tarantula to eat some mealworms. She hasn't eaten in awhile, but I don't think she is getting ready to shed. I have her in a critter keeper (I thinks its a med), her substrate is coco fibers and organic potting soil mixed. I have a small metal dish that I put some mealworms in, but she didn't eat them. I also tried crushing one's head and putting it at her feet, but still couldn't get her to eat it. It's especially hard because she is very jumpy and quick to rear up at me. I am also working on setting up a 10 gal for her.
