Ok I got home from work today and,found my G. rosea in a attack posture. Well closer inspection revealed a line of ants going in my G. rosea enclosure.I knew I had to move him so I grabed my med size critter keeper thats empty at the time.I get him almost in and my cat jumps on the coffee table. Well at that time the G. rosea was in . Not thinking I was trying to get it away from my cat and made a big mistake grabbed the kritter keeper by the lid.Needless to say it broke off G. rosea and kritter keeper fall to the floor. My rosea did a tuck and roll king of move and ran off appearing injury free gave me a bit of a chase.Well I put it back in the keeper and notice it was not moving as much looked through the bottom and its bleeding from the mouth. Fangs look broken even looks like the fangs dug into the mouth parts. Is there any chance to save it any way to stop the bleeding ? I feel like such a moron.Man i'm upset . Can anyone help me ? 2 spiders in three days is just ****** up.I feel like such a screw up.
