So my G. rosea had 2 of her back legs curled under her an hour ago, out of alarm I checked if she was okay and she started walking around as usual. She has a full water dish and just ate a fat cricket yesterday, so I doubt shes dehydrated. Anyone have any ideas?

Unless all of her legs are curled and she's not being very responsive chances are she's perfectly fine.

My MM G. pulchripes likes to curl up some of his legs from time to time. He's just old and tired. And likes to troll, apparently. He's still alive and well. =)

Don't panic! I see mine do that from time to time. I think it's just grooming, usually.
It always startles me, though! hahaha

It was probably sleeping, until it was so rudely awakened! ;)
Unless ALL of its legs are curled under at the same time, it's not a death curl - it is just doing what tarantulas do (like causing unnecessary panic in it's new owner!).
