Your olios is most likely moulting. Expect to see some leeway on those lost legs :)

my O.g. did something similar when she made eggsacs. mine were adult when i got them so i dunno if they do the same thing for molting

i hope so, the last few times she moulted she just hung from a string and did it, i've never seen her bubble up like this before

cool...keep us posted on the huntsman. also, whenever you figure it out, how many P. johnsoni are there? i just had one sac hatch and though i don't have an official count..i would say theres somewhere around 70 of them. i have one more female sitting on her sac which i expect to be hatching in a week or so.
