      At any rate, I would say to keep up the work on her and be patient. From the top down angle you posted above, she actually looks to be hiding in her legs in the second shot, not in a death curl. This first shot does look like a death curl, so there is progress.

      If I am correct in my observation (Hard to say with just two pics at that angle), her behavior is normal now for her species. These are incredibly docile Ts (the females that is). At least in my experience. And her wanting to hide is typical.

      Does she have a hide or shelter you can give her to retreat to? She might appreciate that.

      Otherwise, as Jump said, give her a week or so to settle in.

      Oh, and she is gorgeous! I love these Ts and have 4 of them myself right now (two breeding pairs).
      Thanks ManlyMan7. Thank You for bringing me on this forum. The people are very helpful. I will do that. I really hope that she will recover. Can't wait see her crawling on her enclosure. Yea she looks goegeous that why i bought another younger albicep so i can see how they change they looks while they are growing. Thanks again!

      Sorry, I had to step out for a bit.

      I agree with what's been said so far.

      The incredibly docile nature of B. albiceps is why I wanted to see pics of it. As Manly said, she just looks very shy and is hiding.

      IMHO... if she is seeming to improve, I would house her in the AM into her new home. I think she will be much more at ease on some 'ground', and a hide and water available. Wait a few days for her to settle in, then offer a small prey. She actually looks quite healthy.

      I find that many of my Ts, once they catch and eat a prey in a new home, are much more at ease.

      Hi. Thank you guys for helping me out i followed all the instructions that you gave me and all turned out great. My albicep now looks healthy and normal. I put substrate and a hide for her. She is now grinking on the water and crawling a lot and she dont hide on her legs anymore. She looks healthy and beautiful now. Im very happy that she is safe.

      Welcome Shelob,

      You're in the right place for the best support and advise with caring for and raising your tarantula's! As I read your post's I could feel your concern for that beautiful B. albiceps. I'm a bit late to add anything helpful, but it's ok since the advice already given came from some of the best of the best in the hobby.

      Looks like you did a great job helping her recover.

      I find Brachy's to be some of the sweetest natured tarantula's, and have often thought how terrifying being shipped in a box must be for them.
      Glad to see she's doing better...Her posture in post #13 would worry even the most seasoned tarantula keeper, so I'll say again...Great job!

      Kevin

      Wow, she looks much better! I figured this was the issue. Some Ts are just incredibly shy and will appear to be sick, when all they want to do is hide intil they feel secure enough to start exploring and settling in.

      Relax! Take it easy. This is not an instantaneous hobby. It's a long term "getting to know you" sort of thing. There's plenty of time, perhaps a whole lifetime, to enjoy these phenomenal creatures. Patience. One step at a time. One day at a time. No worries. -Stan Schultz
