So my female GBB had been in premolt for about 2-3 months now, and is finally molting. She was convulsing a lot on her belly and finally got to her back, I watched for a little and made sure she had plently of space.... I just checked on her and she is back on her stomach side with her legs still pointed in the air.

She is moving a lot, but her carapeice still seems to be connected, should I try and get her on her back again or just let her continue?

Definitely leave her alone... The last thing you want to do right now is stress it.

Yeah, I understand that part.. I'm just nervous she'll have molt problems on her stomach. Well only time will tell, meanwhile my P.cambridge had a successful molt earlier, in under one hour too. She's about 6"+ now :D

I have some bad news, the GBB is still on her back.... doesn't seem to have gotten any farther in the molt. She is now barley moving, I don't know what to do :wall:. I don't want to intervine if she will be ok, but I'm pretty sure something is wrong.
