Well.
Slinky, our P. cambridgei has sealed herself in her corner "bubble" of webbing. She just finished closing the top.
No exits.
She hasn't eaten in three days.
Molt?

No bald spots or any other indications.

LOL.

I'll get that skin out somehow.

I still don't know How.....

But I'll cross that bridge after the actual moult is done. :)

haha yeah, i ended up with only half a moult, theres still 2 legs in with it :/

i had to fashion an all-purpose-spider-untesil (paper clip bent and taped to paint brush) and 'rake' it out

it took about two weeks to even get it out, until then the web was too thick to remove :O
