Some Ts like to seal off their burrow or entrance prior to premolt and won't come out until they are done and comfy enough to come out, hope that helps.

rthanks that really helps.do you know what is minax??
What do you mean what is minax? A H minax is a Thai black tarantula in common terms, a burrower as we know. What I mean by seal off is it might web the entrance to it's burrow preventing intrusion and allowing it to be secluded in peace if it is in premolt stages. No T likes to be disturbed in premolt and be sure not to disturb it at all until the molt is done and even after that time and precautions must be taken since the T is in vunerable state since the new exoskeleton won't be fully hard yet.
