My L. parahybana is lying acoss the opening of its burrow, all legs out...the back two kinda pulled up looking strange...I honestly think it is about to molt, but I dont know WHY it isnt flipped over...is it going to pull itself out and drop down the burrow?
Well, I was STaring at it, trying to figure out if it was molting or dying or what..and I noticed one antennae poke out from under the silk leaf in there,( that was decoration,but is now webbed into the burrow entrance). A CRICKET! a cricket I thought was eaten a couple days ago...not eaten, very much alive, and hiding under the leaf, waiting to eat my molting T.
So what I did, because I couldnt catch the stupid thing without disturbing the T....T never even flinched during my attempts...was I used a marker to push a burrow straight down in the corner of the cage..and when the cricket went into it...I squished it with the marker *gag*.
Now, I just hope my weird sling knows what it is doing, and is okay if it never flips over.

nothing.

Nothing has changed. The T is in the exact same spot and position as it was this morning. I sure hope IT knows what it is doing...and that it is NOt dying.
It moved a leg when I barely touched it. So it didnt die..
Very frustrating.
Hey look, I got promoted. I am not a peon anymore....:}

okay, it's HUGE!

i DONT know how this T fit in it's old skin.
Finally did molt. Last night.The other stuff posted above must have been to fake me out.
I wish I had a camera. I am going to get one. Soon as I figure out what kind to buy.
Lasidora parahybana. Amazing . It is stretched out right now and ery cool looking. If its a male, I am getting another one.
hmmm. Since I dont know how to tell the diffeence, maybe I should just go get another one.
;P
