My B smithi is molting and it has not been moving at all I am so scared this was my first tarantula and I think some thing is not right its been half an hour and nothing help.
Ill quote you lol...... you are right though...... it can be a long time. Even one time a sling suprised me by taking 5 hours to fully get through the process.Don't be impatient, and for the love of whatever deity you might believe in DO NOT TOUCH THE TARANTULA. Do not touch it, spray it, poke it, open the enclosure, touch the enclosure. Leave it alone.
It can take hours, even for a tiny spider. A juvie or adult might take a day, possibly longer but don't quote me on that.
