i've got a H incei sling that's in bad shape.

first i thought it was just a simple case of dehydration, but after i took a few macro shots, this guy seems to be in really bad shape.

missing a leg, and the ones it does have are bent at odd angles.
it is mobile, and has eaten twice in the 2 weeks i've had it but i'm concerned.
you'll see that it's fangs are also fully out - i have not seen it retract them.

Temps at about 84F/ 29C
substrate is moist, not wet
humidity is at about 80%

any suggestions?





cheers

Looks like the result of a bad molt. As long as it can eat and drink it might be alright. If it makes it through to the next molt it will repair the damage.
Try to minimize stress and interactions to just feeding. I hope it plls through.
