I think something is wrong with this tarantula

I tapped its butt again to get it off paper towel and its not moving at all

it feels cold and there is a huge bold spot on its but like completely bald.

The bald spot might be a sign it is going to molt soon
Nice tarantula!

just keep it a high humidity/high temp ICU.. it might be dehydrated and yes the bald patch is very normal. wait for it to darken and in a few days time she'll molt.

grats! Smile

T's tend to stay on the paper towel they travelled in for a while

It seems they feel more secure on it than moving off into unknown territory

Bald spots usually happen when the T has been subjected to stress. If you can see its pinkish colour its not ready to moult. It will go dark brown or even shiny black when due a moult

Warm it up, give it a little water and somewhere to hide, and leave her be for a while. She looks fat so no need to worry about feeding her for a while.

She will soon find her way into the hide and relax in there Wink

Enjoy the Brachy, they are great species

Yes, they generally kick hair in transit when they are shaken about. If its pink it should continue to feed for a while yet so give it five days to a week or so and then try and feed once its settled.

My 2 red knees are pigs and will eat until they explode Wink

They eat loads but can go long periods without if you overfeed them. Try it and if its not eaten remove and try again in a week
