    My little Nhandu molted again this morning. I got it as a N. coloratovillosus, but when I found it this morning it's abdomen was distinctly red...(not the rusty orange of the coloratovillusus but the deep red of a chromatus). It also is beginning to show some white striping running down the legs in between the solid white bands. Could it be a chromatus instead of a coloratovillosus?

    I will get a picture when the exoskeleton starts to harden more. Poor thing still looks pretty soft right now.

    Does anyone have pictures of the two species at about 1 1/2" slings?
