They eat *a lot* LOL.
As for larger prey, pinheads are tiny. My sub-adults and adults take 1/4" crickets with no problems and a lot of enthusiasm.
I occasionally offer isopods and waxworms -- infrequently as even the softer bodied isopods look to have more chitin than I'd trust to give too frequently, and waxworms are fatty.
(Terribilis are really easy to overfeed because they're unstoppable killing machines.)
All of my adults will take prey as small as melanogaster and as large as 1/4" crickets and waxworms, and would probably take a run at something larger if I let them. Only my yellows will pay attention to tropical springtails, the Mints and Blackfoots consider them beneath their notice.
