    Checked on my GBB this morning and it's hanging in this weird position. I'm thinking it may be molting but have never seen a GBB or any arboreal molting. Or is it just being goofy. IMG_0721.JPG

    I think it’s just hanging out. Definitely plump though!

    That's what I thought. It ate Saturday and was plump so skipped it today. I'll just leave it alone and see what happens.

    Back to normal now. I guess that big behind was more than it could balance over its head and it flipped over and was hanging on.

    Fat spiders often pose weirdly and freak us out. Wait till you see a plump arboreal on the glass with its fat ass hanging at a 90º angle..lol
