well i woke up this morning to find my goliath pinktoe sling dead. apparently he got stuck in his molt. i got it about 2 weeks ago, and it had been feeding well and the humidity was up. so i don't know what went wrong. hopefully i can learn from this and just make sure i'm there to help next time. :(

Dang man, I'm sorry to hear that. I know it's a fairly common occurance with T blondi. I thought T apophysis were a little hardier during molting though. Sometimes some of the little guys just weren't meant to make it. :(

Well, hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear that.
I've lost a couple slings in the past few weeks also. What really sucks IMO is, your never sure what happened. Was it too wet, was it too dry, was it too cold ? Ect. I just shake my head and keep my fingers crossed, hopeing for better luck.
Well, if nothing else. Your not alone...
