could of been a bad molt.its just not knowing what it is which is frustrating.its been 5 days she is still alive I will keep her comfortable and hope she pulls through but of course I will keep u updated.While there's life there is hope. Has she moved or changed position since yesterday?
I wouldn't rehouse the Aphonopelma, especially if she's been on that topsoil for a while. If it's topsoil, it's just dirt that hasn't had any
fertilisers added to it.
I also think she's had a fall + sustained some other injury than just the leg.
I don't think anyone was saying your genic has DKS. It was brought up because someone mentioned a balance disorder that chicks can get. DKS isn't a disease but it's a symptom (like a rash is a symptom of measles or chicken pox or etc. ......you get the picture!) It's not well understood but the spider loses the ability to move and feed in a coordinated way. Often very jerky movements, legs going everywhere in an uncoordinated flurry. Poisoning by chemical exposure is suspected to be the main culprit, but noone really knows.
