Hello. I had a little accident with a missing sector orb weaver when I was trying to let her free. I had her on a pencil and wanted to release her on the balcony so she can make a web but unfortunately the pencil slipped and she fell along with it. Will she be okay from a 3 storey fall?
Thank you.

As long as there are no ruptures, she should be fine. You could also do some simple physics to calculate the force in which a spider could take during impact.

Most true spiders that size can survive falls higher then that.

Depends on her Size and how much she weighs. But she will probably be fine
