Hi. I hope you don't mind me jumping on board your discussion but my rescued Hamorii hasn't moved in 2 days now. She's (I say she as I'm not sure) huddled up in the corner of her tank. I've had her for 4 years now and I don't normally see her when she does this as she usually holds up in her hide, where she was until I dropped some food in her tank the other day, and I think it disturbed her, hense coming out.
I'm hoping she's in pre moult. It's very worrying.
I don't want to lose her as I nursed this creature from young, she had an abdomen puncture wound but that healed completely after a few moults.

Pictures of the tarantula and its setup would be helpful.

That being said, sometimes tarantulas sit in the same position for a long time.

Most probably nothing to be concerned about, my B. emilia has been huddled in the same corner of her enclosure for a couple of weeks now (in exactly the same position for the most part), I'm fairly sure she's in pre-moult though. Brachys aren't exactly the most active tarantulas anyway.
