    Save one animal and it doesn't change the world, but it surely changes the world for that one animal!

    Oh the thorax is stuck on the abdomen. That shouldn't be a problem. Just use tweezers and try to knock it off. Don't grab it in case it's actually stuck to something. It doesn't seem stuck though so it should fall off with a little help. You will probably have to take it out its tank.

    I agree should come right off with a little gentle help. I just had a similar thing happen with my LP, it came right off with a little touch from the tongs

    NOOOOO DONT SPRAY HER!!! They hate that and it really stresses them. They have an incredibly sense of touch as well. Such awesome little creatures.

    Ok now I'm more concerned. I can't quite tell what that is. Can you describe it. I think it's had a bad molt.

    It looks like a wrinkle of old skin I'd say or may be leftovers

    If it's more excess she'd then try to tap that off as well. I thought it looked like a would or something on the pic. Extra skin shouldn't be too bad though. Keep me updated I want to see it ok.

    thank you Jack, no it is not a wound and if it is, it is healed.
    so i should leave it be and it should be better after next shed? or a guy will knock it off? and if it is a bad shed, why did that happen and what i can do to prevent it from happening in the future?

    all i can say that whatever that is it didn't affect his appetite lol it is possible to overfeed tarantula?

    Looks like it's some left over molt on his abdomen; I've had that happen to some slings on occasion.
    What you can do is keep it moist for a while, and try and grab it off with tweezers or something if it does not come off on it's own. I would think it's just barely stuck on, as there are bristles under there.
    Otherwise, you can just leave it; it's not anywhere serious that would impede a future molt.

    You can "overfeed" a tarantula to a point that it may stop eating or fast for an indeterminate amount of time, but I've only heard/read of one or two reports of them actually eating so much that they seemingly burst.
    To be safe, I wouldn't feed it so much to the point where the abdomen is more than double the size of the carapace.

    Edit:

    Cute 'lil guy, by the way. I miss when mine was that small.

    thank you! i will slow down on a food then, the guy eats like 6-8 3 week crickets probably a week, i get them for my baby geckos once a week and then extra just throw in there, i must say they disappear pretty fast. I can swear after molt it doubled its previous size, how this is possible?

    i tried to grab whatever is stuck and take it off, it stuck pretty well, i'm afraid to hurt it. will increase humiidty, but i think it should be around 75 at least in there already, it is a small plastic tub with a few small holes for ventilation, substrate has never dried out yet.

    i have another question though about my other one, it has molded, going right now to take a pic. one of those what the heck I'm looking at lol

    Make sure humidity and temp are perfect especially when it's molting. If it already was then it's just bad luck.

    When a tarantula molts it isn't actually stuck inside the old exoskeleton all cramped up. It comes out soft then as it's new exoskeleton is hardening it expands so it grows bigger.

    I was told forget about humidity and temps and they strive on neglect lol right Glenn? Lol

    Then the q- can humidity be too high? I can get one of those humidity gauges and stick a probe in this enclosure, I should have one of those, I have so much of everything laying around lol
