She has never been kept with a heat source - this ulcer is likely caused by her very large abdomen constantly rubbing on the substrate and other items in her enclosure. I got this girl already with this ulcer present. In my experience, you can't correct this and can only prevent it from worsening.
M or F?
My specimen is approximately 4-4.5 inches DLS.

Currently marked as a suspect female. Would like to change suspect into definite, if possible.
Bought this unsexed at a Petco on Saturday, in heavy premolt and already expecting that with my luck it was a penultimate male. But he was "reduced to sell" at $20, and I figured at that price, either I was gonna buy him or some idiot was going to.
Love my B. albo. My first baby. She is the Nicaraguan form, the lighting does makes it seem like she's the Honduran form, but I have other pictures on my profile showing the white setae on her. I especially love her setae because they have a pinkish tinge to them. Absolutely gorgeous tarantula <3.
