Ventral side of MF L. klugi

Wanda's had that white spot on her abdomen since her molt back in October. Seven months later, and she seems to be doing fine. It doesn't seem to be slowing her down. Decided while she was just hanging out on the side of the cage, I might as well take a new shot of her ventral side.

      Hmm, I wonder what it may be

      It could be a drag wound, although the abdomen doesn't look so big that it would drag very much. Is there anything rough in the cage that she could have dragged it over?

      It shouldn't be anything that's in the cage now since she's had that spot since the day she molted back in October. She's had a rehouse since that molt.

      From reading this forum, the closest I've seen to a spot like this was when someone posted how their spider had been mauled but had recovered and since molted. The spot looks like the spots that were on that spider after it molted. Best I can determine, she must have suffered some sort of injury between molts, and this spot is akin to growing a new limb, but in this case growing a new patch of exoskeleton.

      It will probably be gone with another molt. Good luck with your big sweet girl!

      I've changed the title to reflect the fact that the seller is 99% positive that she's klugi, not a difficilis.

      The seller also suggested that it might a healing drag wound.
