Mods, please move this to the Animalicious forum if this is inappropriate, but I was not sure this qualified as an animal thing... My son has a pet tarantula and I have been taking care of it since he moved out and until he gets a place where he can have it. My question is this: DOES A TARANTULA SHED ITS LEGS??? There are at least two "legs" (detached) in the terrarium now, and possibly three, and when he (she?) was stretched out a little while ago, I counted ten "legs" on the actual spider. HELP!!! Is s/he sick? Is this normal? I have no idea and it is very freaky. Thanks!
