Advertisement So I bought an awesome B. smithi from Ryan (Talkenlate04) about a week ago. My first one (T's look so much better in person than in pictures!), and it's a confirmed female and all. Well, I got home yesterday and checked on it and I noticed the peach-y bald patch on its abdomen had turned a black/dark gray shade. From what I've gathered, that means it could molt at any time. I'm so excited. I have 9 spiders and I've been in this hobby for only about two months, and this will be my first molt. I won't be home all weekend (going to Anchorage) so I'll probably miss it. I just hope she'll be okay and healthy!
