this cobalt blue is a truper. It suffered a bad molt which twisted 1/2 its legs and caused it to bleed between its abdomen and carapace. Now on top of this it seems to be developing a tumor in its abdomen. yesterday I noticed a bump on its abodmen and i thought it was dehidrated so i moved it to an icu. It has eaten a bit since then and now the bump has become massive. It has probly quadrupled in size and is covering most of the top of its abdomen. I have never seen anything like this.

Here is a pic

notice the raised spot toward the back of its abdomen

most cysts and tumor cases are fatal coupled with a bad molt and bleeding you might want to say goodbyes now, dont give up now tho tarantulas are amazing!!! As long as it eats and drinks it may recover just make it as comfortable as you can and hope for the best

Ya poor thing it was so spunky before it's molt. I'm expecting a death. Its at least in a controlled environment so it gives it a better chance since it doesn't need to hunt for food. It did just eat and then it's abdomen grew that lump.
