Strange thing hanging out from Amblypygid abdomen?

    So I received my D. medius from tarantulaspiders.com today, and my female seems to have this weird thing hanging off her abdomen. When I first took her out of the shipping container I thought it was just some substrate stuck to her underside, but now I'm not so sure. Can anyone weigh in on this? I'm pretty worried about it.

    She finally started moving around her enclosure, and I'm thinking that those might be the remnants of an old egg sac? Does anyone know if it is normal for that to kinda hang around?

    Piece of a stuck molt, maybe?

    It looks like a failed eggsac to me
