I think my T is on its last leg. It’s a mature male G. rosea. It does not react to anything, I picked it up gently, and lays there motionless. This was my first T and I would hate to lose it, but more importantly I would hate for it to suffer. Should I put it in the freezer?

No Freezer....... Let it die a natural death. I don't know a whole lot about tarantulas, but I have kept many reptiles and that is a bad death. Just make sure the little guy is comfy, and wait for him to go out the way he is supposed to. Sorry about your loss.........:(

If you're going to euthanize a T, they say to put it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before you put it in the freezer.
