      I'm sorry... did you pick it up and take a picture as it was attempting to molt? Because that's what it looks like.

      @EulersK I certainly hope not. But it does appear that way.
    • SkittleBunny
      Thats what i thought... I'm curious to know if the poor thing molted okay
    • Paul1126
      I'm also very curious.
    • boina
      That's a female - the other, and more important question is whether that female is still alive after being picked up during molt... unbelievable.
    • Alienwiredgirl
      @EulersK no, that would be so bad. It unfortunately died which is worse :(
    • Alienwiredgirl
      @boina Can you please dial down the judging , I did not pick it up during a molt. It’s already dead and I’m heartbroken over it.
    • boina
      @Alienwiredgirl I'm confused. Why would you post a dead tarantula in a sexing gallery - and without mentioning it? I'm sorry I drew the wrong conclusions, but it would have never occurred to me that someone would like a dead tarantula sexed.

      @Alienwiredgirl How could we have possibly known that it was dead? And further, how do you know it's dead? Unless it's been like that for upwards of 72 hours, I'd leave it be.

      @boina sigh. I understand your perspective, however asking questions before jumping to conclusions goes a long way. This forums main existence is to learn from one another, (the unbelievable comment was unnecessary.) I’v had my little guy(girl) for about a year and a half and have grown attached. I’v spent this whole time wondering what sex it was because (she) was always destroying her molt and this molt would have finally told me. I’v had her since she was just .75 . In the spirit of satisfying my curiosity and turning something super sad into a learning opportunity before I cast her, I thought I’d ask. Sorry if that’s so “off” for everyone.
