But shye is pre-molt.. and has been working on some heavy webbing (possilbe hammock?)... but she ventures to the top and she keeps on hurting her abdomen, and she wotn stop climbing. Right now she is bleeding from a small wound (blood is minimum) and she is very shaky and still trying to climb...

Maybe your tank is too humid. If I overfill my T waterdish sometimes she will spend a couple of days hanging out at the top of her tank.

How big is she? perhaps if you have a small container laying around the house or in your kitchen cabinets this may work until you can buy a more suitable home for her.

If she's bleeding your going to have to patch her up with super glue or similar, or she will bleed to death.

Is this one you caught in the wild?

If so - release it back where you found it (after patching it up).

Either that or get a smaller cheap container. As someone else suggested, you can go to WalMart or even a dollar store.

Sounds like it's pretty stressed. Look through your fridge/kitchen and try to find a suitable and lower container...like empty out a peanut butter or mayonaise jar. I am thinking just to wad up some paper towels on top of the substrate, temporarily.
