Okay. . .can you get pictures?

Has he been eating normally?

Have you tried offering water?

Does he have mycosis?

When did this behavior start?

Did you notice any lethargic behavior beforehand? (E.g. Tail dragging, slow movement, etc.)

Is it showing any signs of premolt?

Has he moved at all in the last 24 hours?

What's his cage setup like?

And lastly, is his metasoma (tail) laying flat, straight out behind him?

Whoa many questions.
Is his tail straight out, or curled? Take a picture.

Sorry about that. If he was small he may have died molting. I think these guys often have trouble molting in captivity. If you get another one you might look for a large one. I'm not an expert on these guys though and maybe some of the others here can chime in.

Sorry to hear it.

What was it's behavior like before it died? What about cage conditions? Could it have been exposed to pesticides?

It may give a clue as to why it died.
