i got up last night and my rose hair was acting strange, she would straiten her front right leg and use a pedipalp and the leg behind he front one and push on her 'knee' as though she was trying to get it to go backward ??? she'd push on it for a few seconds, then raise the leg up and bring it down fast a couple time, then repeat the whole process...i thought maybe she was trying to cast the leg but there was nothing wrong with it. she was on clean, dry coco fiber, there were no insects in the tank that might've injured it, and she had plenty of water
then she calmly walked over the the spot where she hags out and relaxed...and is now acting normal again...have any of you more experienced T keepers encountered this behavior?

P. S. i don't think she was cleaning it either...

I've seen mine do this too, but i don't think it's anything serious. If she's normal now, I wouldn't worry.
