My year and a half old Brachyplema albopilosum molted 2 days ago, and since then she has been acting very weird. She moves around as normal, but when she is stationary, she sort of lies with her carapess on the ground. She has never done that. When I checked her just now, she was lying on her carapess with two of her legs curled underneath her. Should I be concerned? Please help!

She may still be exhausted from the molt. Give her a few days and see what happens.

Spiders adopt strange poses after a molt, it helps to stretch out the skin before it hardens and is perfectly normal

yes, he/she should be fine. Molting is really exhausting.

My B.vagans sling just molted and he/she is doing the same thing, with occasionally stretching dip movement (normal).

Make sure it has plenty of water in a dish...
