Hello, I'm brand new to all of this. I've had my rosey for about 4 years now. I'm certain she's a female. I got her 2 weeks after her first molt. A couple weeks after that she started eating and we lived happily together for the next 3 years in which she hadn't molted until 2 months ago, which I thought was very odd. Well now since her molt she has not eaten and now has burrowed in a corner of her cage and hasn't moved, a white web looking spot is just piling up behind her. Her legs are curled undernether her body and shows NO sign of movement. Her abdomen has becoming increasingly flat over the last couple days. I will say I do not have a heater and I keep a water dish full and sometimes just over flow it for excess moisture. She has been a normal active spider until her last molt. Is she dying or what is going on?? I'm afraid to take a picture in fear of her becoming anymore stressed if she is when I remove the lide ro her cage. please help.
