    Hi, I have a question about my curly hair. My curly hair has had its bald spot for a couple of months now. Anyways, I'm noticing a blue spot on its abdomen. Im Wondering if im seeing its internal organs or its hemocyanin. Its like seeing blood in a pasty white dude

    Wow, that is a very bald butt! :jawdrop:

    As pre-molt comes on, the color will change from peach/flesh to almost completely black. If you see the black area spreading, you know it's going to molt soon. That may be starting already, judging from the photo.

    Ok, thanks, I never noticed the color change when he molted before.

    For larger tarantulas, it's not obvious unless they have a bald spot. (The hair will hide the color change.)

    Just read the first paragraph of the 6 year old original post. Good to know B. albos are nw spiders because they have eight legs..
