I had a mature female g. pulchra go into a death curl several weeks ago, I moved it out into our yard shed which has been getting over 90 degrees with the warm weather here. I looked at the pulchra yesterday when I went to clean its enclosure, there is no shrinkage or shriveling of the abdomen, there is no "death" smell from it. any ideas what is going on here? I am sure the pulchra is dead, there is no response from it at all......

That's pretty strange. Are you sure it was dead??? Yup, it's been mighty damn hot here in our nice little city! BTW, I tried to respond to your PM and I got an error message that your PM box was full.

Good luck with finding out what happened.

I have had it for several years, it was an adult when I got it.....I don't know if it was WC or what.......it could have died from old age if it was a WC.......
