    Does it affect how she strikes? Because my spider bp misses sometimes because she'll wobble and it makes her go wide when she strikes so she misses by like 3-4 inches. Just wondering if that's normal?

    I have a super pastel spider, he's only
    300ish grams. So far no wobble. He's a
    beauty!

    She eats f/t, doesnt strike doesnt play, she just begins to swallow the rat.

    I know when i had him, my mojave spider missed his first strikes at his food as he got older, even though it was f/t on a set of tongs.

    Mine eats f/t also, I hold it in front of her with tongs, and she generally misses at least once, sometimes she'll miss so many times, she'll just give up and not eat till the next week. But she's young, turns a year old next Wednesday.

    Mine did this right after it ate. For the first time in history. Thought it died.
