I have a lil 1-1/2" spiderling. It has never ate good which surprised me. It molted and then refused to eat for weeks. Now its in a death curl and it seems to be biting with its fangs and legs are occasionally moving. I thought maybe it was molting upright but I don't think so. Any help would be great. I have it in an ICU now.

Can you take pictures of the spider and enclosure? That would help a ton. They shouldn't be eating for a bit after a molt until their fangs harden. If it's abdomen is shrunken and not plump you can try flipping it over (very gently) and try giving it a drop of water on the base of its fangs.

Once again a picture is invaluable

I will when I get home. It hasn't eaten in weeks fangs are black. I did flip it over gently and put drops on its fangs and mouth part area.
