great T!

Are you talking about the space around the spinnerets? If you are it is just the part where the spinnerets sit. Almost all NW tarantulas have this. You Ts abdomen is fairly plump so it makes it a bit more noticable.

Oooob I want one.

Dont worry your T is healthy. That is the place where the spinnerets sit naturally. The hair around them grows longer than other sp.

Very nice spider :)

Yeah I could tell from the responses and your question that they didn't quite get what you were asking.
