    Our Chilean Rosehair, named Cuddles, is laying on her side in her terrarium.

    she has not been eating for about 3 weeks. I just went to check on her, she is laying on her side with her legs up in the air. I poked her feet and she moved a little bit.

    what's wrong with her!? :(

    Could she be molting?
    Can you describe her enclosure in detail?

    I have no advice but I wanted to say I am sorry it seems your critter is not doing well.

    Can you post some Pictures, How old is it, Is the cage humid enough?

    T's will go on their back when they shed.

    She is molting!!!! I woke up just now and checked on her, and it's soooo creepy and cool!! She is part way out of her..self. Lol!!

    I've never had a tarantula (it is actually my boyfriend's spider that he had before we even met) and I got scared cause he was at work and I thought she was dying.

    My boyfriend describes it as, "she is having an out of body experience."

    I tried to take some pictures but they didn't turn out very well and I don't want to disturb her anymore. But she's almost all the way out of her skin!
