My little lady is a baldy probably due to shipping and I can't help not to notice the strange pattern where the hair should be. Is it internal organs or the actual coloring of the abdomen? I've never seen anything like it.

It could have been in premolt preshipment and just got a bit stressed during shipment. It doesn't look like anything to worry about.

Edit:
The darker spot looks almost like the exo blackening. Is she eating at all?

What you are seeing is the outline of the heart or more specifically the pericardium (the the sack-like tissue that covers the heart). Sometimes you can see the lateral arteries which extend from the sides of the heart, but in your case those are not visible.

That. Is. Incredible. I actually can see the the lateral arteries extending they just aren't visible in the picture.
