I may be stupid for asking this but where on gods green earth are the second pair of book lungs
@Mychajlo Sorry, typed that before I noticed what you were talking about. Quick question, is the first pair of book lungs the anterior book lungs and the second pair the posterior book lungs?
@WildSpider I’m sorry, I’ve never heard them called that before I’m sorry, but the first pair is the ones right behind the last pair of legs and the second pair is the ones closest to the spinarettes, in your picture I don’t see the first pair closest to the legs, like I only see one pair, it may just be the angle, if you can try and get a more clear and straight picture
@Arachnophoric dang I’m an idiot I’m sorry for trying to be Nancy Drew with the spider :rofl: I see it now, she’s just twisted around the corner. In that case, as for the picture in question I’m going with male, but I’d like to see a more straight and clear picture lol
If the tarantula is on the slimmer side, the anterior (more towards the front of their bodies) lungs can very much be along the sides of their bodies as opposed to be completely on the bottom like the posterior (more towards the back of their bodies) lungs are.
Yea this one is a bit odd :confused:

I just picked her up at an Exotic Pet Store where they had her free up for adoption... in a tiny cup, not even an inch of sub, and no water dish. He (or she?) is in a 5.5 with 6" sub (Coco Fiber and Peat Moss 50/50), damp, but not wet on the bottom and drier towards the top, with a water dish and a cork log with a small starter burrow I carved out underneath. IDK what she is- very strange abdomen, which is why I am a bit confuzzled.

I'll try to snap a better shot once it crawls up the glass agin.
