Caribena versicolor Juvenile/Sub-Adult Male

Rehoused my darling Willow tonight - into a much larger and more suitable home. It went without incident.

      Nice shot. This is one of my favorites for color.

      Is the bald patch from it kicking hairs? I have an adult male and it looks almost identical but I' be never noticed hair kicking.
    • Trenor
      @Jayvicularia That's a mirror patch. A lot of NW tarantulas have them.

      This little guy has never rubbed/kicked hair - not even during his rehouse. He is a sweetie-pie! :)

      Thank for the info Trenor.. what is the "mirror patch" from? Is it something left from the molting process?
    • Trenor
      @Jayvicularia A mirror patch is a patch of highly reflective, iridescent short hairs found on the rump of certain tarantula species. So when you take a photo from straight on it reflects more light and shows up like this. A lot of NW tarantulas have them and to my knowledge, OW Ts do not.

      Ok..good info. I thought it was a bald spot. Looks like I have some reading to do.
