My spider is in premolt, 3 inch A.Geniculata juvie, her bald spot is black and she isnt eating. I know shes gunna molt and she rubbs her legs together real fast sometimes and sometimes the pedaphalps real fast and is walking around everywhere(shes not laying down the web for a molt she is just walking to different parts of the cage. Is this normal?? or is there something i need to do? temp is at 80 and humidity is 50%-70%, shes had a black bald spot for 2-3 days thanks,

Mark

This is nothing too strange. SPiders are going through a lot as they grow and pacing is something lotsof my spiders do right before a molt.
