That's horrible. I know they have to eat live food, that's why I couldn't own one. I had pet mice so I certainly would not wish to feed a baby one to a pet spider

They eat live invertebrates; there is no reason whatsoever to feed them on live vertebrates. They will often enjoy a pre-killed mouse but they don't even need it. Virtually every tarantula will thrive on a variety of mealworms, crickets, locusts etc.

I choose to feed mice to some of my larger specimens but only pre-killed because live feeding is unnecessary. Not only that, I feed mine on grown mice specifically as a source of calcium and other nutrients, also, adult mice can easily injure the tarantula.

No reason to feed live pinkies to tarantulas.

Ill never get the sadistic nature behind the enjoyment of live feedings.
