Advertisement Aloha, so it looks like my A. Avicularia is molting today. It has shown all signs of premolt (made a hammock, refused food, looks like a bald spot). Premolt has been going on since I got it, about a month (minus on small cricket the first week). So when I came home from work today, it is kind of on its back in its web. It isn’t completely laying down, but is turned over. It has been completely motionless since I’ve been home. My daughter said it’s been turned over for the past 5 hours or so. I’ve read a lot that says molting doesn’t generally take longer than six hours, but it’s been five and she’s still just sitting there still. Should I be worried? Do they sometimes remain in this position for a while before actually starting to molt? Should I be seeing more movement?
