    Hi! Regarding the enclosure, I kept this container from some cotton pads that I bought on a store. I used to keep some beauty blenders before but used it for Momo when I saw that the size was useful... I only made some ventilation holes with a heated nail :)

    A lot. Also Momo was my first tarantula so I was really excited about it and I think that made it more difficult to cope. Thank you so much for everything <3 I appreciate it deeply.

    Thank you. I'll probably wait a little bit before having another one. It hit me more than I expected :(

    Thank you everyone for your help and support. Sadly Momo didn't pull it through. I'll try get one later since I've always wanted to raise and have a tarantula but Momo helped me as a beginner and I'll keep learning from this experience

    The only thing that keeps doing is this shake on the leg :(

    So Momo was moving last time I checked her and seemed kinda normal but she's not responding at all. I'm guessing I've lost her :(

    Thank you so much for the help and support! I understand that maybe she won't make it and if it happens, it's ok but I'll keep doing my best to make it as best as possible :)

    B. smithi not eating~

    Update! I haven't been able to capture it well on video but she moves a lot more fluid from time to time instead of tiny faint movements. Also took a picture since she looks less like a "ball" and more like she does when she's standing (but on her back obviously). I keep the water drops...

    B. smithi not eating~

    I'm still on it. While putting another water drop recently, the point of my brush got stuck by mistake in one of her toes and she moved all back and forward for a moment :oops: I'm sorry for disturbing her but just a little bit more relieved to know that she's still here and getting slowly...

    Mini update Her legs seem to be less curled on her belly and sometimes she moves softly

    B. smithi not eating~

    It's SUCH a little bit but I put a drop of water and moved her legs faintly! She was getting kinda stiff before while touching her with the brush I'll keep awake to check her out every few hours... I really really have a little bit more of hope.

    I'll try the drops since putting her head on the dish didn't work. I'm almost feeling like she won't make it but I'll keep trying. Thank you.

    Yes! I'll return her enclosure as it was before the substrate change. Right now she's like this.

    She hasn't had any moulting since August that I received her but ate three times since then.

    Had to go outside today because of a family matter but checked her as soon as I arrived and found her like that, still moving. Put her in ICU as I found I should on internet, hope it's ok and helps her :c I'll keep mi room warm and an eye on her for some hours.

    B. smithi not eating~

    Now I'm officially concerned. It's not moving normal if I touch her with a brush. I have her substrate moist where the water dish is and misted it more now so it has more water close where it is. I've put a heater in my room to keep the whole place warmer, hope it works. I don't know if the...

    Helloooo!! This is why it scares meee and it doesn't want to move :C It can though, I touch it gently with a brush just to check... maybe because of the cold? It's getting chillier recently.

    Thank you all for your help! I'll let you know if there's something new :3

    Hello again! Finally I was able to go to go to Petco and change the substrate to peat moss, hope it's a good change. Sometimes it curls up or is super slow and scares me :c probably just newbie reactions. Here some pics c:
