Preparing healthy FOOD for my TARANTULAS !!! (feat. Elvarg)

  • Published: 23 September 2018
  • This video will demonstrate how I prepare food for my bug-eating animals. Known as "Gut-loading" in the hobby, it is basically filling up the feeder insects' guts with good nutrients from healthy foods, which will then be passed on to the animal that eats it. As the saying goes, "You are what you eat".. it is a practice that many recommend to do prior to feeding your beloved pet(s). Why? Many feeder insects are not often well-fed in pet stores or by suppliers (there are exceptions to this). Feeding your animal an insect that hasn't been properly gut-loaded may not provide it with the nutrients it needs to thrive in the long run.

                          Also I used to have a bearded dragon, so what we used to do what we would buy them, cover them in calcium powder, then just dump them into the cage. I always imagined that they were people running around trying to survive a dragon but had to die either way because they had nowhere to go in the first place
