A mealworm slipped under my G pulchra’s plastic leaf and it attacked it from above. Her fang is stuck in the leaf and the worm is on the underside. If she moves the whole leaf moves with her. I tried tempting her with another worm, but she couldn’t get off the leaf. And I tried poking the worm from under the leaf to get her to let go, but she’s stuck. Do you all think she’ll let go eventually or is she going to eat this plastic leaf for dinner?

Watch her very carefully.
If she can't get herself free, you might have to intervene.
Chances are she can but this could be a problem.
Good luck.

She’s free! I had to wiggle the leaf a good bit until she dropped the worm and I was able to nudge her off of it. All good. I gave her a fresh worm and am leaving her alone

If this were to happen again I would attempt to press down on the leaf

My juvenile spider got its foot stuck in thin plastic sheeting and its leg came off.
