I have a female Grammastola rosea, around 4 in. last night, she was huddled in a corner, and brought the end of each one of her legs to her mouth. her pedipalps and fangs were constatly moving. I had fed her a big ole cricket sunday, and yesterday was tuesday. I'm hoping that it means her skin is itchy and a molt is coming. also, her legs were pulled in more that usual, so they were almost perpendicular to the ground. it wasn't the death pose, tho... Thx in advance, peeps! :cool:

It's just grooming, at times I wish some people were as cleanly groomed as the Ts I have. They make sure they cleanup themselves after eating..lol:p

kk. thx guys. i knew i shouldn't overreacts, because she didn't have any reason to die. i mean, in a cage in the room of the purfection that is Jake, or spider heaven; which is better?

jk. anyways, i'm glad she's fine. We have so much in common. eat bug guts, sleep a lot, bathe once in two months; it's awesome! okay, i'm going to stop typing and let you guys on your way. toodles! :cool:
