I feel totally sick right now:(
Earlier today I was moving one of my Usambara slings
and it ran out of the vial and jumped to the floor:eek:
So, I chased it and tried to cover it, and the most terrible thing happened. I caught it with the deli cup and I hurt the poor
little thing.
It wouldn't have been so bad if my son wasn't watching.
He saw the whole thing:(
It's so small I can't tell how bad I hurt it. I do not see any
fluid leaking out of it either. I looked with a magnifying glass.
It's sitting in the vial with it's legs over its head, all scrunched up.
I saw it move a little, so maybe it will be ok.

ahhh...that is always a tragic occurance.

i really hope the sling does well. if you don't see any fluids leaking out and it isn't missing any apendages, maybe that's a good sign eh?

good luck. :(

Here's the morning report.
The little demon appears to be ok.:)
I went to look at him/her and got the OBT
leave me alone salute! The little thing was up
on its 2 hind legs!Then it jumped up onto the
side of the jar:eek:
Maybe its just pissed at me and it will be ok:cool:

I took another look at my little T and it looks like
it has lost the use of one of its legs. (right hind leg)

Is there anything else I should do for it?
Do you think it might throw the leg when it molts?

thats too bad about your little sling. Im sure when it molts the leg will be cast aside and will start growing a nice new one. My cobalt has a bent leg that is still operable but doesnt look so nice. Good luck

peace

Now its my turn for bad news:(
The little bugger didn't make it.
I went to check on it this morning
and it was dead.
Now we have 9 T's

Sorry

In the future, keep a fish net handy. Spiders can't run too long so relax and slowly follow it and let it run into a net. I dropped my juvie A. chalcodes once and learned from that to keep calm and let the spider runs its course - they can't get too far before exhaustion. My little guy made it thorugh unscathed from the 3' drop onto carpet - T's do bounce ;) !

I hope you feel better - sorry for your loss :( .

I am sorry to hear about your loss... :( I kept all my fingers crossed for the T to survive it...

At least you have got 9 other T's to take care of... :)
