Oh my goodness, I guess this is the one of the worst things that could happen. I never was in that case but I think if she is not bleeding extremely maybe she survives to the next molt with just one of her cheliceres. Think that she gets a new one then. Did you feed her in the postmolting week? If you did maybe her fangs bended and got instable. Just a guess.
Good luck though!

Is it only one fang? Was it eating regularly before this happened? If so try feeding it. How far back on the fang did the break occur? As long as it has one fang left and is not leaking hemolymph, I would suspect that it should be able to catch and eat crickets. I think Spider Saviour had an A. avicularia that lost a fang in a molt and it managed to eat and survive.

Hope this helps,

John

Not bad just the sharp end of it.a piece... it's not bleeding. I was just scared that it may harm her. Thanks :)

I just sold a A. chalcodes with a fang that was broken in half. She is big and fat. One fang didn't slow her eating down at all.;)
