So, yeah.. My rose hair is definitely missing a pedipalp. I don't know if this will ever be a problem for him, and he has no problem catching crickets right now. Anyone else think this may be a problem for him in the future or ever have a T that was missing something?
I didn't purchase this one. He was actually a gift from a friend for my birthday, and I noticed he only had one pedipalp right away. He is super calm, but I wish I knew what happened to him. :\

It will take awhile at that size, but it will regenerate the pedipalp in a couple of molts. Molts can come once a year at that size though.:) If it has no problem eating, then it should be just fine.

We have had a P. murinus lose a leg and it regenerated in 2 molts. The first one it was back, but gimpy. The second it was good as new.

I had a G pulchra missing a leg until a recent molt. I'm much happier even though it's new limb is thin.
