    My versi sling is about the size of a half dollar. he seems to have one of his legs bent/possibly broken in an unnatural position. I am not able to see blood dripping, but it is right at the joint. Is there anything to do or do I just make sure he is eating ok?

    Pictures speak more than a thousand words. We really need pictures before the situation can be assessed accordingly.

    Also tarantulas do not have blood, they have hemolymph which is a pale blue/grey colour.

    It is hard to see but I couldn't lift the lid without disturbing him. It's the leg that is bent oddly, and there is a clearish-grey dot. To me it looks like the joing because it's not dripping or pooling.
