Advertisement Emergency 911 Help!!! I have an extremely urgent problem. I have a g. auriostriata (sp?). She was acting very strangle lately, webbing up her cage and huddling in the corner. We blew it off as irritation from the light since she seemed to do it when we were in the room with the lights on. Last night, after close observation and what would be the equivalent of a 9.0 on the richter scale from a flashlight on the table her cage was on, we were sure that she was dead. We left her overnight so that we could take care of the burial in the morning. This morning, much to our dismay, she had begun to molt. We were both happy and relieved by this. However, now it is 10 hours later and she has made little to no progress from where she was 10 hours ago. I'm not sure if it is the compramising position that she is in, or if it is just not meant for her to live. At 1:30 this afternoon she was making visible attempts to lift herself up out of her old skin, since she molted right side up. Her attempts ended up being in vein because it is 11 now, a full 9.5 hours later and she is only about 1/4 inch farther out of her skin than she was at 1:30. What should I do? I've attached pictures of her. Please respond asap! This is the prize of our collection and we are very close to this spider. She's been the best of all five and the easiest to care for! Thanks for you time.
