I am Looking at a 4-5 inch C. lividium. It looks to be in need of a molt, bald abdomen, balding carapace, dark brown black with hints of blue on the femurs. Could this be a female? At this size, if it was a male wouldnt it be starting to get leggy?

O/W Ts don't go bald..

The only thing I can think is maybe a super old MM..

. Hmmm. Kind of looked like the fuzzy stuff rubbed off a plastic toy. Like the purple cat skeletor road on back in day. Sort of like this pic I borrowed from the net

Its not terribly uncommon for imlorts to come in missing hair from the patella and prosoma from building burrows in rocky or rooted areas.. It's the bald abdomen that has me some what puzzled..

O/W Ts don't have urticating hairs like N/Ws so they don't develop bald spots on the abdomen.. I have seen old Mature males that have a sort of bald appearance to the abdomen because of age but thats it..

I'll have to look again. Perhaps I was assuming bald because that is so common in t's.
