Hello I’m a beginner keeper can anyone please tell me what the cause of this is? His leg is bent in a weird position and idk if it’s just from a bad molt, he’s a nhandu chromatus and I’ve only had him a little over a year.

Hello Haney,

Hard to say from the picture but these things happen sometimes during the molting process. Do not worry, if the leg is bad the T will likely loose it. Nothing to stress about here either as your T will regrow its leg as well. At the next molt a tiny leg will appear and after one or two more molts it will be back as the original ;)
Cheers.
