    :T:Well I come with good news and Hope. I was reading other forums and came across a site
    where I read of another situation like mine. She had the same thing happening with no movement
    and on her back but, her exoskeleton was open. This T. was also in her teens, 15 to be exact.
    Anyway, I read she was told to give it a steam. Well, I did and she is showing allot
    more movement, just in the short time she was there. ;)
    I am going to give credit where credit is due. The site that was helpful in this situation was
    Tarantulas us. I hope I am not out of line with this but, I feel it is necessary..:cool:

    Oh, this makes me so happy. I was getting really worried, I've been following your other thread the whole time, I was hoping for a happy ending. And no, I'm sure you have not jinxed it. Good luck! :)

    wish he/she would have pulled through but its a thing that will happen to us all at some point we all just got to keep that in our minds and not think that they will be around forever

    Me too Anthony, she was so cool. She had a long life, 13 years...
    Now she is with her original own. I can just imagine how happy he is to see her.:D:T:

    I don't know where to go to get one, or what kind. I have checked the pet shops
    and have only seen one Rose Hair T.
    This was my husbands cousin's baby.

    Hi. Sad to hear about this. I think everybody else here has experienced or will experience the same. It's part of the hobby. But the thing is we will never stop taking care of T's..
