It's been 4 full days since my L. parahybana molted and he's still refusing food. None of my other spiders have ever waited this long after a molt to eat...should I worry?

probably not, how big it your spider? Some of mine, even the smaller ones, don't eat for 2-3 weeks after molting. They won't starve themselves, just try again in a few days!

no problem, if he's 6", his fangs aren't even black yet. I'd give him AT LEAST a week to 10 days before even offering food, and it may take even longer. Then he'll be back to his usual piggy self!
