Yes yes my other posta bout my "dying" (read: molting) tarantula is still on the front page ... We have a t. stirmi, about 8 inches, female. Age unknown. Her back right leg, she is walking with a limp (and holding up the leg from touching the ground) and it is leaking fluid from the joins. Not a steady dripping, just a little bubble of clear liquid. I assume since she is limping while walking, she can feel some sort of pain or discomfort. Can spiders feel pain? Anyway, the internet says to pat it with a piece of tissue paper, which we have done, but how do we determine the cause of the leaking?
