I have a b. albopilosum, 3/4 inch, it was in the death curl but its legs were still twitching. I put it aside to keep an eye on it. 5 days later, it is still curled slightly and twitching. It doesn't move around but its legs keep twitching. It is odd.

I have about 40 others from the same egg sac all doing well. This one has grown at a normal rate, eating, etc.

Anyone experienced this?

A friend of mine had this happen to him. But it was with a G. rosea. But she checked on her one day and she was in the death curl and stayed like that for several days, and then about a week later she was up walking around like nothing happened

Have you tried intervening at all? Putting it in an ICU, etc.?

Yep, it is being taken care of. It is still moving. Not an upright molt. It is a sling and it has been like this for about a week now. It almost seems like a nervous system condition.
