Hey guys, I'm a new tarantula mom and I'm really worried about my 3/4" versi sling I've had for about 2 months. About 2 weeks ago she stopped eating, her abdomen was ready to pop, so I knew a molt was coming up soon. Last night I went to check on her and she was sort of diagonal, belly up, looked as if she had started the molting process but it was really hard to tell because of the way she positioned herself under a leaf. I just let her be and checked on her again this morning, but it doesn't look like she made any progress. I think maybe she has a few legs and her abdomen out, but it's just so hard to tell. I tried to move the leaf out of the way a bit to see and she is COMPLETELY unresponsive to any movement. It's been about 24 hours now and I'm really worried "/ Should I try and move her out to see what's going on- try and help her? I don't want to stress her out more if she even is still alive.
