Advertisement Hey everyone! Thank you to anyone who reads this, I really appreciate it. About 3 months ago I got my first tarantula, an adult female brachypelma albopilosum. At time of purchasing her, I noticed she was missing a leg, no big deal, it will grow back over a few molts. Well over the last week or so her behavior has changed a lot. Normally she is a great eater and is just under her hide or strolling around. She started burrowing heavily, being strange about food but still eating, and constantly burying her water dish. I’ve noticed a spot developing on her abdomen that didn’t seem like the color I thought I’d see for pre-molt but again, this is my first tarantula(I now have 2 more t’s) Is anyone able to weigh in based on this picture. The spots I’m talking about are brownish orange almost.
