    Sorry to hear this. I don't know anything about spiders, hopefully someone will be along soon who does. Does she have a heatpad, has it blown a fuse and got cold, and she's shut down because she's cold? Sorry, that's all I can think of.

    I'm sorry to hear that. What species is she? Where did you acquire her? Does she have water available?

    I'm so sorry to hear that. We have a Chilean Rose-hair we bought from a local pet shop as well. Tarantulas from pet shops are often shipped under less then ideal conditions which means they may be less healthy upon being acquired. That may be why she ended up passing.
