Seems to be alive. Should I move it to something else?

Even darker today. Something should happen soon enough. Not sure when to expect the molt. It's a Brachypelma after all

It molted yesterday. I usually wait to feed too but with smaller slings I have fed after a day or 2. Maybe I have been doing it wrong.
I feed soon after molts and this would be my recommendations for soonest post-molt feedings. Tiny tiny slings 2 days, slings the size of yours 3 days, juvies 5 days, sub-adults 7 days and adults 10 days.

So in your opinion better to feed soon after molt than later? I mean it will be super wrong to wait 3-4 days for feeding a sling after molt? What are the benefits of feeding earlier?

It's on its side this morning. Not sure if it is going to molt or not. It may sound like it is going to since its on its side but it has often times tipped itself over the last few months since it only has 2 good legs on one side. I would often find it on its back trying to get back on its feet. I usually help it roll back but since it is so close to a molt I chose to leave it alone in case it is actually going to soon. Im trying to not disturb it untill it molts

I feed way after post molt. There are no advantages of feeding earlier IMHO. Even slings wait 10 days before feeding again for me. Would hate to break both fangs and die. Nothing will happen by waiting.

It is mostly out the last leg that was twisted seems to be stuck. Not sure if I should do something. The abdomen is mostly off so the new booklungs are not covered

Well I helped out a little. The two last legs didn't want to come out. Still don't think im out of the woods yet but here she is

Im still nervouse because it didn't really move much when I was taking a cotton swab to the rear legs

I think part of the issue is that all the new legs were so much shorter and came loose first. There wasn't enough force to push the three longer ones out

I'd call it mr potato, it's passing all the phases: from potato without legs, now is a germinating potato, and a full grown mr potato 😂😂😂😂
