So I have had this beautiful C. elegans for some time now and she has always molted in a web tube under substrate. She was out the other day but took no food. Now hasn't moved for a few days and was just in place looking normal. Now like this for hours?
She doesnt look dead to me, even in a moist environment a 3 day dead spider would begin curling and looking shriveled. I do agree that it is a bizarre position to hold for such a long time though, but unfortunately theres little to be done regardless of what the cause is. Lets just hope its a very delayed molt
