    IMG_0755.JPG IMG_0754.JPG i am tarantula-sitting for a friend and it molted. I need help with what to do....the entire carapace is attached to it in the center back and it can hardly move and I think it injured one of its legs from trying to move. I'm keeping the humidity very high right now too...Do I let nature take its course or do I intervene and if so, WHAT DO I DO????. Please help!

    I'm so sorry and even more sorry that I missed your request for help. Sadly this happens quite often for no apparent reason.

    Sorry to hear :( I'm not sure there's too much you could've done anyway besides trying to carefully cut the moult off where you could...
