Greetings, it's been awhile, but I need some opinions. I am fully aware that the answer could just be, wait until it molts and see. However if there is something I'm not thinking of, please point it out. A couple of months ago i noticed that my G. pulchra had a unique bald patch. It's in an arc on the side of its abdomen. After examining it further, the back leg has a hard crust on it, which had rubbed the place that out rested on the abdomen bald. There was no bleeding, nor injury as it can't climb in it's enclosure. I don't know if the hard substance is some sort of scab. I tried a q-tip and water with no success. It also has developed a white patch on bald patch. These are the best pictures I could get.
