Others have defensive dispositions and are quick to bite. Replenish as needed taking care to not saturate the substrate. As a rule, live prey is required, however, some tarantulas will scavenge on dead animals.

    Tarantulas use their fangs to inject venom into prey to dissolve the innards, and then they suck out the nutrients. How often you feed your tarantula is up to you. It is extremely important to remove any uneaten prey items whether live or dead within 24 hours or so. These are only a few of the hands-on activities visitors can use to explore the fascinating world of tarantulas. And remember to not play card games with the cheetah!!!!!!

You'll have to discover the rest for yourself.
