Advertisement I woke up this morning to find the tall glass terrarium housing my 5" P. Regalis lying on the floor smashed into pieces. Presumably my girlfriend's cat knocked the terrarium off of its shelf in the night, and I slept right through the noise! Of course the spider was nowhere to be found, being too smart to stick around and play with the kitty. Upon closer inspection of the wreckage I discovered a single, unattached, leg pinned to the glass by the large piece of dried grapevine that had leaned against the other side of the enclosure. It looks like when the case fell, the impact sent the piece of vine smashing into my girl's web and caught her by surprise there. Either she detached the leg or it was ripped out, I have no idea. To make a terrible story worse, the person who actually managed to find my Regalis was my girlfriend, who loves spiders when they're behind glass but definitely not on the loose. The spider was on the bottom of a long curtain and scrambled when my gf lifted the fabric up. She freaked out and dropped the curtain, sending the little Regalis on a four ft. fall to the hardwood floor. After the harrowing chase and capture that followed, I noticed that the leg immediately adjacent to the now-empty socket was completely limp and useless. Amazingly still alive after its ordeal, the spider is now resting in a dark, ventilated deli container. So my questions are: A) Are there any special measures I should take? B) Should I rehouse her right away? C) Do you think she'll detach the injured leg? Or will I have to do something about it myself? D) How do you console a tarantula after a traumatic incident?!?!?!
