I haven't kept this spider as a pet. But, if I was thinking about adopting a tarantula, I would look at this one first. This site has been very helpful, especially since I have been researching the Pink-Toed Tarantula for a science report i am doing.

yeah in rare cases corn snakes will eat each other. There is a bigger chance if you are breeding them that this will happen. other than that good care sheet.

these are very docile creatures. they look like dangerous animals but are extremely easy to handle with care.

REGENERATED LEGS. I have a number of tarantulas in my collection right now. A stripe knee, Cobalt blue, chilian rose hair, 2 pink toes and a goliath bird eater, (theraphosa blondi). I recently bought the second pink toe and she arrived with one leg missing. She has just undergone her first molt since being here and the leg is completly regenerated. Complete regeneration can occur during one molt.

I've had my T. blondi for about 5 months. It is quite easily startled and short tempered. There's nothing quite like the sound of if its fangs hitting my metal tongs as I attempt to remove food scraps and feces from its enclosure. The urticating hairs from this species are extremely irritating. I have found a pair of arm-length rubber gloves to be very useful. You must be very careful not to get any of those hairs near your eyes,nose, or mouth.
It has a 9" legspan and is in a 20 gal. long aquarium with about 7 inches of Eco-Earth/vermiculite/peat moss mix. Heat is supplied with a 60 watt ceramic heat bulb during the day, a 15 watt red night bulb 24 hours a day, and an undertank heater placed on the side of the aquarium. Humidity is maintained by misting daily and covering about 2/3 of the screen top with a sheet of acrylic. The temperature stays around 80F day/74F Night. Humidity is 80%. Surprisingy I feed this spider mostly gut loaded crickets(the largest ones I can buy) several times a week. About once a week it gets a Madagascar hissing cockroach. Of the tarantulas I have, currently, this one requires the most maintenance. Due to its aggressive nature required living conditions, and feeding regimen, I don't recommend this one to anyone new to the hobby.

i have two corns of my own.
one is a black corn and one is a cream sicle corn.
its perfectly normal if your corn does not feed before shedding.
look in the eyes to see if they are smokey, to see if it is shedding or not.
