Unfortunatly her abdomen has been squashed and she has lost a leg, but she is still alive and has been hibernating last wintter.
I got her in summer, after he nuptial flight.
Also, can she survive without a leg? And will her abdomen inflate again if I feed her?

i've heard of queens surviving with missing legs antenna and some with gastor dents. although it will be harder for this queen and will be a challenge.
