Nanchantress Posted August 3, 2011 Share Posted August 3, 2011 I have a male Hisser (2+ inches) that has remained in the same position for 2 days. Sometimes I would see a slight twitch of a leg, but that's it. I placed his mouth on some water droplets, thinking maybe that would help, but nothing... So this morning I put him in the freezer. Now I am second guessing myself. Do you think he could have been in pre-molt? Do Hissers even have a pre-molt stage like tarantulas do? I am new to Hissers but have 11 tarantulas so I can recognize pre-molt behavior in Ts. What if I killed a perfectly good Hisser? After work today I might do a "necropsy" and see if I can tell one way or the other. Does anyone know if Hissers stay motionless for a few days prior to molting? Thanks, Nancy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
