What if my tarantula falls while climbing? ?

My tarantula climbs frequently, so that doesn't worry me. But today her leg seems to be caugh in the screen cover of her tank. I'm afraid she can't get down. I don't want to move the cover, because it might cause her to fall. I don't want her to get injured. I'm afraid she'll fall whether I try to help or not. What do I do? If she falls the short distance from the top of her tank, to the bottom, will it hurt her?

OH my GOODNESS! This question and these answers are making me feel dizzy!

1. If you EVER see a terrestrial tarantula climbing, you should be VERY WORRIED. Rule of thumb: Do NOT have the height from the top of the substrate to the lid of the enclosure more than the width of the tarantula's leg span. I'm assuming you're keeping her in a glass aquarium, big no-no. because of the mesh top, and how tarantulas can climb the glass. If you must use an aquarium fill it up three-quarters high with substrate. I keep each of my 127 tarantula specimens in these: http://www.amazon.com/Kritter-Keeper-Medium-Rectangle-Label/dp/B0002APZOE

2. If a terrestrial tarantula falls more than the width of their leg span, it will kill them by rupturing their abdomen. I have seen this happen to many spiders that are in the care of new hobbyists. It's not your fault that you didn't know that climbing is extremely dangerous-but now you know. If the T is arboreal I would flip the cover over to help it. But since it's terrestrial I wouldn't touch a thing.

Good luck, I recommend you pick up a copy of "The Tarantula Keeper's Guide" so you can learn the do's and don'ts of tarantula keeping. I wish for the best!!! :)
