The video you’re about to watch was actually filmed a while back.
At the time of this recording, I did not know what was causing this tarantula to act as such.. but now I know. It’s been affected by some kind of parasite/bacteria in crickets. When fed with crickets, the parasite/bacteria is then transferred to the spider. After I found out, I’ve completely stayed away from crickets.

  • When I was a kid, my mom told me never to hurt a cricket because they saved her dad in the army. She never told me the exact story but I've never killed or handled a cricket because of that. Everything you tell me about crickets makes me doubt my mom 😂

  • My parents had a Rose Hair for over 20 years and all they fed her was crickets. Time to time we would cut up oranges and place them in her terrarium when we didn’t have crickets, and she would eat it. Never had this problem. She recently passed due to age but she never had any medical issues. Now I personally don’t like tarantulas but they are fascinating creatures to watch lol

  • Crickets are fine for tarantulas you just need a good breeder, you most likely were getting from a bad breeder, that was just giving you crickets with parasites or sick ones.

  • Crickets has a parasite who control them and the parasite is called a hair worm and they live in water so when they are eaten by crickets they control the crickets to go to the water so they can go back to theyhome

  • The bacteria or germ does not only effect the thing that eats the cricket but also the cricket itself if you look at the crickets more closely they will be lifting their back legs from the ground in a weird way and wont be able to move them but will still be alive for a short time.

  • Umm actually the parasite that controls the Cricket is called "Horsehair worms", and Horsehair worms can transfer to other bugs that the crickets will eat then the The Larva that is inside the Cricket will eat every nutrions that the Cricket has and when the Larva is fully develop it will control the Crickets mind which will make the Crickets have an Oddly behavior or it will make the crickets not chirp..and then the Parasite that controls the Cricket will make the Cricket Go to a Pool or anything that is watery based and then the Adult Parasite will Burst out of the Crickets Hole and it will leave the Cricket Drowning in the pool..

    • I am pretty sure it's a hair worm parasite. They infect crickets, spiders, praying mantis, and I'm sure many other invertebrates. They will come out when near a water source, or when the host dies. I've witnessed this happen with a spider caught in a cup with the tiniest amount of water and the worm shot out. There are also .any videos of it happening to all above mentioned.

  • From what I've read DKS is mostly a misnomer. Usually DKS-like symptoms are caused by some sort of contamination. Some how, some chemical most likely got in. It could be several links removed, but its probably something both you and your friend have in common, ie substrate, food, or deco sources. Reason Im not thinking crickets, is poison would affect them too. I had this happen to me recently with a few spiders. I lost a B (true) smithi, and had 4 other slings looking like they were drunk. Also my A. chalcodes got hit by it haard. Everyone has recovered now, thank Spider Jesus! I traced it back to a flea treatment i gave my cat, the cat shed some hair, which must have floated into my substrate bucket. So rehousings became a game of Russian Roulette... Never use the flea treatment that you drip onto their neck!!!

  • But what about other food like roaches? If we should stop using crickets, does that mean these parasites only infect crickets and not roaches?

    INKrovertsINKrovertsΠριν 2 μήνες
    • INKroverts From what I’ve read roaches can be infected but it’s rare the parasites really is only after crickets. If you want to be safe you could get a small dish, place the roach inside and fill it up halfway to the roach with water wait about 30 seconds or a minute and the parasite will burst out but an easy way to tell is if the insect is slow(not running) or seen rushing towards water.

    • INKroverts It is called the paragordius virus or hair worm. From what little I’ve seen it has never harmed a small rodent but I can try to find a site with more information.

      Sol AnimationsSol AnimationsΠριν 2 μήνες
    • @Sol Animations But I can still ask the same question: does that mean roaches and mice and other small animals don't get infected when they drink the same water? What's the name of the parasite? I want to know more.

      INKrovertsINKrovertsΠριν 2 μήνες
    • Those parasites mainly target only crickets they first infect a small water insect and wait for a cricket to eat the insect then the parasite will eat all of the crickets fat and nutrients for a few months the they take over the cricket brain but really they just release a pheromone in the brain causing the cricket to wonder aimlessly so that it could fall in a body of water so the cycle can restart. The parasites tartget is a cricket but I’ve also seen a praying mantis infected before.
