I have my P. irminia L11 for 2 months already. First I got her in normal shape and she ate normally. But I really don't know - or is it because of overfeeding or somethink else, but her stomach started hanging like dead bag approx 1 month earlier- even more when she was on glass upside down.. That was terrible scene, but I thought that she going to molt and all be allright. But when she molted fine - the stomach still is uncontrolable hanging because of gravitation. There are observed such minimal muscular controll - close to zero. I experienced first time this.. and I really don't know what to do..
PS: Her webbing abilities are much lower now.
Any suggestions guys?..

This is very weird. Does your T eat ok?
She is 1,5 weeks after her molt. I really didn't tried to feed her, but I will.. She is quite inactive now - prefer to sit on glass surface than another activities..:?

Are you providing water?

A pic would be very helpful. Get a look at the pedicel, too.

Do you know where your P. irminia came from? If it was WC, it could possibly have some kind of parasite.

Again, a pic would be nice, but is sounds like either EXTREME dehydration, or some type of parasite.
