Premolt abdomen ?
Heya ! Just wanted to know, this is my LP, she never kicked hairs, but is this a premolt abdomen or she just scratched herself ?
I believe pre-molt, but tarantulas can lose hairs without you witnessing them kick. Tarantulas lay down urticating hairs inside of their burrows, and in the webbing around their enclosure. This is a defense mechanism that ensures any pesky predator who might come sniffing around gets a nose full of urticating hairs and will send them scampering off to look elsewhere for a meal. Especially in the time leading up to a molt when they are in a very fragile state.
 
@miss moxie One week ago, I could see her everytime outside her hide but now she stays inside. She ate yesterday tho, maybe she will enter into a premolt stage really soon :).

Thanks for the informations :), you said things I didn't know, like the urcating hairs on the web to repel predators, that's interesting :eek:
