I have never teased it or anyhting, Ive been recomended to feed them with tweasers, My male took it three times and literrally threw it to the side, his sting came up the third time. was stinging at the tweasers. I stopped. My question is, Can he damage his stinger if he hits the tweasers with it ? My friend recomended I twease there food. ( real life friend )

Well for starters you dont need to tweezer feed the food to them. Its neat because you can actually watch them eat as opposed to throwing it in going down the burrow and never coming back. What it sounds like is that your emp was perhaps threatened by the tweezers , if they were never fed like this they may react this way. Also if he threw it to the side sounds like he wasnt hungry at the moment. I doubt any damage would be done by him hitting the tweezers. Mine will periodically grab the tweezers but when I first started they reacted like you said.


This girl does very well with tweezers now.
(yes I know the substrate looks dry on the top, there is actually about 8 inches of very moist cocofiber)

I slip small lengths of aquarium air hose over the ends of my tweezers to make them a bit more claw friendly.
