Deformed abdomen?

    Greetings all. My B. albopilosum female just molted and I noticed something odd. The abdomen seems to be misshapen. Have a look:


    That is a picture from straight above her, face first in the water dish. Is it due to her still soft exo, or possibly a bad molt? Is it anything to worry about?

    It is hard to tell, can you post up some more pictures from different angles? How long ago was the molt?

    i second that ... more picures of more angles needed ... inc from behind too ... am not too sure but a wrinkled abdomen may signal dehydration so ensuring a good fresh water supply close to her will help ... the fact that she is straight into the water dish could be a sign of dehydration
