    Trying to chill because it seems like every time I freak out, the answer is usually “spiders are weird” but I just don’t like the way that one leg looks.

    A death curl is a loss of fluid pressure and it wouldn’t usually affect just one leg randomly, right?

    Like @Arachnoclown said, that's some tarantula yoga for you :p
    If it makes you to be less concerned in the future, let me introduce my yoga mistress Cydaea, Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli sling :D

    She can have pretty much anything between 1 to 6 legs curled underneath.
