Incy Wincy: Update.



Photos taken this evening.

Click on either image if you want an even closer view.

She has been eating over the past three days, which is a relief   (she is eating in these photos) and she  looks as if she is on the mend.

Certainly she has filled out a little and lost that emaciated look, but she is still not fully active yet, her right side – the one she shed a severely damaged leg –  is a concern, as you may be able to discern from the top photo, but she is moving a little, which is progress.

I am still hopeful she fully recovers, but this may now take more time than I originally anticipated and may will include one or two more molts – maybe she will even shed another leg?

Besides, the last thing I want to do is see her fatten up, release her, only to encounter a wasp after 5 minutes.

So it looks as if she may remain a guest for a while.

Fine by me.

She is such a well behaved young lady!

  1. She’s obviously in safe hands. I’m reminded of my late best friend’s husband Dr Martin Filmer, the spider expert. He had quite the collection dotted around their house, including a rather large Tarantula. I was always a bit nervous when I visited there, especially as he once jokingly informed me that it had escaped and he was still searching for it. 😅

    1. I’m sure I remember you mentioning him some time ago? Yes, if one is of a nervous disposition, and especially if one has any sort of arachnophobia that would be a waking nightmare!

  2. She’s lovely. Had to smile at “she is such a well behaved young lady”, it’s impossible to convey polite spider sentiment to those who shriek at the sight of well behaved spiders.:)

    1. You are absolutely right. Under the circumstances, however, I would feel better ( for her) if she were a lot more sassy.

      Meantime, I enjoy playing the doting doctor.
