Fallie held Badger this week.
Badger molted again! This is the first time that we found the carapace in good condition. You can see the holes where her eyeballs are!
That is my hand next to Badger, not a little girl hand!
Holding a tarantula is serious business.

Are you cool Fallie? You think I’m absolutely ridiculous for not snuggling with him, don’t you?
Badger, eating a cricket, has not been forgotten

Badger, after molt number 7
Badger molted again. Here he is when we first got him.
This picture was taken after Badger molted for the fifth time. I never got a good one of him stretched out.
I fed Badger today. The first cricket I picked up was hyper and about to escape so I threw it into Badger’s habitat. Somehow, I threw this cricket right into Badger’s web, down the hole, right to his freaking mouth! I felt really bad at first, like I must of scared the crap out of him. But he ate it! Maybe I made his day! I could never do it again if I tired every single time. He is still very timid but not when it comes to dinner.
I saw our tarantula catch a cricket last weekend. Badger is a bad ass.
