So come home from work to be told my emp has taken a fall of about 2ft whilst misting was taking place (god knows how or from where but hey) so is it likely to be bye bye? from all accounts it seemed alert as partner told me she put it in a cricket tub (it walked in and it was attempting a sting) it seems okay now and no ruptures of exoskeleton but dreading waking up to a dead emp...please dont have a go re handling as just need advice

Just wait and see what happens. It all depends on what he took the fall onto...If it was tile it may look worse than if it were carpet.

Think about it tarantulas have a nice round(ish) juicy abdomen, so If they fall it can rupture easily
think about pushing on a really full water balloon lol
