    I went to check on my crab spider last night and saw it had mooted so I went to grab the only and realized it was still attached to the grab spider but it was completely unresponsive while I did this so I just left it alone to finish molting I came back today and same thing but it's completely stiff and like dead I think I grabbed it by the only to find that it's completely unresponsive it's not in a death curl so I have no idea what's going on can anyone tell me what to do

    Crab spiders often have difficulty moulting especially in lower humidities and less ventilation
