Well to be fair idk when she molted, I just saw the dried molt, fed her, then today rehoused her and well.. they looked purple the whole time, no matter the lighting. Im not complaining, but every other time they were blue.. I even have the old molts chiliceria(cant spell) to compare, its crazy!Depending on the light they'll look both blue and purple. Brighter colors immediately following a molt are normal.
Just rehousedIs yours out often or did you just get lucky with that picture? Mine is a pet hole, I'm lucky if I see toes.
This may be it, she is not a confirmed female. The molts were always mangled mostly when she threw them out. Damn that sucks to hearIs it a confirmed female? I am no expert on the species, but from my research males chelicerae turn purple or burgundy on maturity. You might just have a unicorn
I hope not, but the color is definitely different from the pics I have seen and that just posted from BoyFromLA. Might be male, but I encourage you to do your own research. Time to start finding him a lady if soThis may be it, she is not a confirmed female. The molts were always mangled mostly when she threw them out. Damn that sucks to hear
If it was an MM you'd know it just by looking at it.Theriphosidae, but shouldn't he be roaming and tapping? He's holed up in a tunnel he dug quickly.
also wouldn't we see palpal bulbs?
So.. Is the one I showed a MM? I would imagine no, Is there still a chance its a female? aka do males and females get the purple fangs?
Nope, pedipalps are normal.So.. Is the one I showed a MM?
It's either a female or an immature male.Is there still a chance its a female?
Yes, it's literally only slings and smaller juvies that have bright blue chelicerae, as they get bigger the chelicerae turn purple and dull somewhat.do males and females get the purple fangs?
You need to tag someone to get their attention like this @Pyrelitha I don't come back and read threads once I respond.So, Viper, does that apply to females? or is it a male
Once I learned that I was not as excited about owning subsequent specimens. Though as sling/juvi one of the colorful Ts out there.Yes, it's literally only slings and smaller juvies that have bright blue chelicerae, as they get bigger the chelicerae turn purple and dull somewhat.
Uhm well at the start a lot, she took forever to burrow.. once she burrows, never, except like glimpses when feeding and cool moments when you can shine a light down the hole and she doesnt move.
