i just found out that my tarantula is upside down. It was fine around 3 hours ago.
Leg span diagonal is around 7.5cm
And body length 5cm
Is it molting or has something happened
The humidity inside the terranium was higher than usual (85-90%)

Please let me know.

More than likely molting.

Don't worry about measuring humidity, as humidity is irrelevant to the hobby and more than likely the gauge is inaccurate as most if not all are.

Spiders dont die on their backs...its molting. No tarantula should ever have humidity in its enclosure that high except a Theraphosa and a couple others. Your spider should be on dry substrate...humidity shouldn't be a factor.
