Aww poor guy. I can't really give you any advise that hasn't already been put out though. I hope he gets better though.

So. Pete is belly up in his tank right now. Not sure if he's capable if another molt so soon so I don't think this is good news. There is small movement still. I covered the tank completely and will check on him tomorrow to assess the situation. Anyone have any insight? Dead or Molting? How long until the telltale smell kicks in?

I have not heard of a tarantula dying on their backs. I mean, I guess it could happen, but I have not heard of it. It would be pretty miraculous if he were moulting again, under the circumstances, but I hope that he is. Still hoping Pete pulls through.

He's been on his back 2 days. I don't think it's another molt but I'm waiting it out. If he hasn't moved by Sunday, I'll assume the guy packed up and went to the Web in the sky.
