Woke up this morning and my T. stirmi is dripping just a little bit if clear fluid. Looks to be coming from it's (legs joints) and it's mouth? Any idea what is happening here? 20170409_062103.jpg 20170409_061401.jpg 20170409_061416.jpg

Looks like just water from getting a drink. Pretty sure you've got a male too if you didn't already know.

Your T has a serious drinking problem and needs a bibb or dribble bucket :rolleyes:
That's the crazy thing guys. He wasn't dripping with water. I wish it was that easy he was bone dry besides those 3 areas slowly dripping for at least 5 to 10 minutes.

Post some side and top pictures of the spider. There are members that should be able to guestimate with those.
Not 100% guaranteed though.

It is one possible explanation, a mature male nearing the end of its life could start showing any number of failing health signs.

Also, post a picture of the whole enclosure. It could have fallen on something.
