My T molted a couple days ago. The next day, it was unresponsive. I put it in a ICU. Here is a pic and please help!

Keep it nice on it's preferred temp and give it a good humidity.
Leave it in peace and let it recover on its own:)

One of the reasons I fear owning a tarantula. I hope it gets healthy soon.

It just happens. I have had my B. Vagans for 9 yrs and before that many others. Never had anything like this.
But it can happen.

I'm sorry but can you post a sharper pic, it's really blurry.
From what I can see it is in what I like to call "resting mode"
the back legs a bit spread , front legs near each other.

I kind of looks better than the first picture.
To reduce stress I would give it a little hide, perhaps offer it some food, a molt demands a lot from the Tarantula.
Make sure you take the prey animal out if your spider doesn't eat it, otherwise it might stress your T and the prey animal could gnaw at the spider.

Give it a lot of rest, leave it in a nice shady / darker room, and let it play out.
There isn't much you can do I'm afraid, but what you do is good!
I have raised my Tarantula from a similar size and I always made sure that there was drinking water available and mist the enclosure when it started to look she was going to molt.

I will check this thread again tomorrow , so if I can help let me know.

The T is still unresponsive and won't move, so I am scared to offer it food.
