"My son was recently given a rose haired tarantula. He lives with his father who isn't always as responsible as I would like. My son told me last Friday that he was out of crickets for his tarantula. He fed her on Thursday. She seemed a little lethargic too, although maybe it's normal for them to not move much in their habitat. I asked his father and new wife if they needed money for crickets. She said "No. He didn't tell us he was out. We will take care of it." Now (on Wednesday), I called and he still doesn't have crickets. The spider hasn't eaten for a week. I'm trying to help him the best I can from afar. He was told to feed the spider every other day. She (spider) is not full grown- she looks about 1/2 the size of most of the pictures and videos I have seen. How often does she need to eat, and is it ok for him to catch bugs sometimes to feed her? I told him maybe he could turn on the light near a window at night and wait for bugs to come to the window, and then catch one or a few and give to her. Are moths ok? Are most ordinary bugs ok? About what percentage of bugs -other than crickets- can she eat and still be healthy?"
