Ouch man, that's rough. Sorry to hear it.
About a year and a half ago I lost my cyaneolum in the exact same fashion. Looked frozen in place.@EulersK
It always sucks to loose and adult/juvenile T that you had high hopes for. I recently lost an expensive ($165) female T. cyaneolum. She was a (outwardly) healthy beautiful spider that died in a hunting stance, upright with a couple legs leaned on the cork bark hide. She had just eaten about 10 days before, ans I pulled her cage to check water and look for bolus during rounds.
Normally she was front and center when ever the enclosure was moved or opened. I was shocked to say the least when there was zero response to any stimuli.
This would have been the first molt in my care, so I'm not sure that's what happened but could have been the issue. There were no signs of premolt outwardly other than a full caboose.About a year and a half ago I lost my cyaneolum in the exact same fashion. Looked frozen in place.
Mine was pre-molt, and I suspect she tried molting upright and just couldn't pop the carapace.
