Stumpy - The Five Legged Tarantula

Looks like my MF. She mysteriously lost 3 of her legs and even one pedipalp. Not sure why. Otherwise completely healthy. How did your little guy lose his/hers?
 
I collected her up in New River a month ago. Just missing her legs, her palps are good. My best guess are battle loses. I found another little girl that's missing two legs (same area), I call her "Sixx" (Yes Motley Crue reference intended). I've collected these guys for years and the is the first time I have ever found anyone with missing legs. Looking forward to see them fully recover (fingers crossed).
 
@AZ Tom im hoping for the best for both your girl and mine as well. as long as she can still get around and feed properly I suppose its not a big deal
