Kukulcania hibernalis Molt Surgery [7/7]
I gently placed her back in her web so she can recover. She is a fighter, and I hope she pulls through. (The leg at the end of her abdomen is from a previous molt.)
I wish her good luck. It would be hard to lose a spider you have had for 7 years. The thing is it looks really really bad. How will she eat? Has she been moving around at all or just lying there?
 
@MrGhostMantis So far she is just lying in her web. She doesn't look dead, but I have not prodded her to see if she reacts.

If she survives for a few more days, I will try feeding her pre-maimed or pre-killed food to make it easier for her to feed.
 
Is that a wound on the back of her carapace? It looks sealed though. Poor thing, hopefully she pulls through.
