Advertisement So yesterday night i noticed that my lasiodora parahybana looked like she was going to explode. I feed her more than all my other tarantulas not on a schedule but just when she will take them. The problem i have is she has a cave that she sits in and the way she does means i usually cant see her abdomen. She is about 4-5" give or take but my worry was what looked like a crack where her abdomen is alsmost like she was gonna pop. I am a bit worried and will definitely stop feeding her for a couple of weeks while she loses some weight. My main question was are there any significant dangers to a fat tarantula? I know about falling from a height but that should not be a problem as she does not climb and only has about 3" height to the top. And the molting situation, what can go wrong with a molt if the tarantula is to fat? Can a tarantulas abdomen just suddenly burst if its to fat? Just a run down of the real dangers would be appreciated. Impossible to get a photo unfortunately. She is definitely not in premolt btw as i stupidly fed her yesterday without seeing how fat she was and she took it which did not surprise me at all.
