Advertisement Hello, This is my first post. Ive had my Chilean rose haired tarantula for 17 years. I thought he was a boy but a friend of mine is convinced hes a girl... I never thought of sexing him before. Anyways he was pretty much full grown when I got him from a shadey mall stand for $20. I have no idea how old he actually is and has stayed roughly the same size. He use to molt every year but hasnt in 5 years. Recently he stopped eating. Has refused food every chance and hasnt eaten in about a year. I think he ate 1 cricket. Now hes been sitting in his water dish for 3 days and yesterday moved to under his hiding log. I think hes dead... Hes lost some abdomin hair and is just laying there. I know hes old but Im sad and dont know if i should leave him or move him or what?? What do I do? Hes my old man and I really hope hes not dead and comes back around.
