Lost a leg

Casey gave me a great deal on an adult female Cobalt Blue. She was missing a leg. It FULLY regenerated after one molt--so anything is possible after a successful molt.

I brought 4 Gimps, (B grade T's) off The Spider Shop, they were all minus a leg. Each grew a new leg the next molt, it was slightly thinner than normal, but perfectly useable. On the second molt each ended up with 8 normal legs.

Edited to add. In a way you are lucky. You are about to witness one of natures truly amazing happenings.

She/he decided to molt again and she has 2/3 legs stuck and at what point do I intervene and what can I do

A damp cotton bud or moist soft brush may be enough to gentle ease the old exo off if not she may cast those legs
