Advertisement So, I got my first Tarantula, a G. rosea, back in November. She's done well, except that last month or so, she hasn't been eating. I have heard that they will periodically fast, so I just offered dubias every week. However, I awoke this morning to find here on her back, having webbed up the enclosure insanely. Myself, being the novice I am, instinctively thought something was terribly wrong, so I flipped her over to see if she was still alive and then tried to get her to drink some water. After the fact, I try searching on the internet, and THEN realize that tarantulas molt on their backs. Of course, that's why she hasn't been eating, she was in premolt. That would also explain the crazy webbing all of the sudden. I just didn't realize it because the exoskeleton had not split yet. So, in even more panic, I go back to her enclosure and flip her back over. what I want to know is, have I effectively sealed my t's death with my actions? I'm really angry at myself right now, and I would feel even worse if I have just caused the death of one of my favorite pets (a pet which I hoped to have for many a year). Any help is greatly appreciated.
