Theraphosa blondi tends to be nocturnal feeding on frogs, small snakes, beetles, insects, lizards and even bats and pinky rats (, 2008).  T. blondi also does not build webs or leap on their prey, they tend "to sneak up on their prey, pouncing at the right moment, and injecting the victim with paralyzing venom"(, 2008).  Also the silk lining T. blondi's burrow entrance, or attached to nearby foliage, can detect the movement of potential prey items (West, 2008).

    Upon acquisition of their food, T. blondi "will often carry their prey back to their burrow or a safe location to eat it at leisure by regurgitate digestive juices onto their victim and sucking up the liquid", 2008).
