HELP! Hisser not Dropping Ootheca

Recommended Posts

Hi, my female hisser is obviously trying to drop her ootheca (her abdomen looks like it is pinching the ootheca off). However, it has now been nearly 3 days and it has not dropped or gone back into her abdomen. I am worried about her health, how can I help her/what do I do?????

If it is outside here body for more than the half hour it takes to form and retract the ootheca is dead. If it happens again and doesn't fall off you can cut off what's sticking out. Gently trying to remove could damage her.
