My Cleo was acting very strange last week. lazy and not eating. This Monday morning she molted and was laying down all nite and now today there is no movement at all. Is it possible for a spider not to pull through. I have a feeling she may be dead or is it possible to have no movement for awhile.
please hurry

Whats her position like, and yes it is possible for Ts not to make it through a molt. It happens quite often really and Theraphosa blondi has the most deaths in this subject.

they rest for a while after molting and when its feels like it has some energy back it will flip itself back over......just leave her be for now...

Generally after a T molts it will do stretching positions for a few days with
its legs extended well out to the front an rear. Legs curled under is not good.
How does the exuvium(molted skin) look? You may be able to determine what
caused the problem by looking at it.:eek:

Try to move it, if doesn't respond or shows signs of being alive well, the answer is only one it's dead.. you should know that.. Sad but certain.. sorry

Still no movement. I will try to post pics
Well I am very sad by this but I think I would like to get another. Can you help with locating anothe T. blondi or a cobalt blue.
I would like to post a pic of the shell to see if it was a M or F
I did not like the pet store where she (As I was told) came from.
