*edit*

"Moltar" answered my thread in the other tarantula forum so i went for it, I managed to get the cricket out from under the webbing with minimal movement of my T.

Thank you for getting back to me.

All is well again.

Thank you Moltar.

/edit

Ok here is the deal, last night I attempted to feed my G. pulchra again as it hadn't been eating for a week or so.

an hour ago, it was right side up so i left the food in there and was going to remove it to night.


Now she/he is on her back and I don't want to bother her except....the bloody cricket is right under her/his webbing that she is laying on and it is very much alive.

Should i risk bugging her to remove the cricket (a little landscaping is involved to get it out.) Or leave it be and hope for the best

its a small cricket 1/3" and she/he is about 2.5-3" maybe a little more.
