      In my case he dropped the newly formed (and stuck) leg, along with the old legs exo still attached. Some leaking at the cephalothorax which quickly stopped.

      Sounds like "Copper" had a little more going on than just a stuck leg. With all the important stuff still working she should be ok in time.
      Great job Kayls!

      Copper is doing fine today, shes managed to loosen the bit of the molt she wouldn't let me take off, which includes two legs and the bottom of the abdomen. Shes moving around fine, in a different place every time I check on her most of the time. She hasn't dropped the leg that is stuck in the molt, although it doesn't have the same level of movement as the other legs (so for now, she has six legs). Caught her grooming earlier-its a little harder for her to balance on the side that has two legs, when both of those are in her mouth.

      Not looking too bad

      The back leg that is stretched out is the stuck one.

      I'm glad she's okay. You did a great job with her. She's beautiful, by the way.

      Copper is currently in the ICU tub-all throughout yesterday she kept forcing herself behind her hide and getting stuck. Her back leg, the one that I thought she would drop, is looking a little mangled but not bleeding, I am not sure if it is still attached fully or just stuck on by a bit of stuck molt somewhere by the top of the leg? I wonder if she has been trying to pull it off. I woke up at 4am, no idea why, I heard a noise coming from the corner of my room and went to check on the pets. The noise was likely just a normal house noise as the snakes weren't being active at that moment in time, but I noticed that Copper was still stuck behind her hide, I had left her to it because she managed to get herself free the first few times, but this time her legs looked curled. I moved the hide and she fell onto her back, so I made her an ICU tub. When I put her into it, she was on her feet, and started moving, but when I checked this morning she was on her back. I don't know whether she tried to climb to the top of the tub, fell and cannot right herself due to dehydration (like what happened with Scarlett the b. vagans when I thought she was molting), or whether she is molting, but it seems a bit soon as she only molted a week ago.
