Advertisement I'm new to the hobby, and I got my Grammostola Pulchra sling back in June. She had been doing great for months, and she molted 3 times during this period. Back in November, I rehoused her into a new enclosure because I felt she was getting too big for the old one. She immediately burrowed into her new enclosure, and I suspected that she would probably molt, so I left it at that. I would peak inside her burrow every now and then, and I saw that she was doing fine. I recently discovered that she had molted since she pushed her molt out of her burrow, so I assumed she was probably getting ready to come out, but today I decided she was probably in her burrow for too long, so I dug her up. She was completely in a death curl and not moving. I inspected her and noticed a shriveled abdomen. I'm just confused because she was doing great. I read on multiple forum posts that you should never dig out a tarantula from their burrow. I read that if they were thirsty they would come out for water. (I always kept her water dish full) Lastly, I read that "tarantulas know how to better tarantulas than humans". I feel that I did something wrong, but I'm not sure.
