Spider Safety Concern

I recently found out what a gasteracantha falcicornis (I don't know the common name for it) was and I just had a question that has been bothering me for a small while, however "goofy/silly" it may be: If the horn looking protrusions on the side grow to be long enough and it happens to fall into rather soft ground, could it get stuck and not be able to get back around? Causing it to, well, die?
