Hi

We got a Brazillian Salmon pink two weeks ago and tonight we have noticed he has orange gunge stuff that has come from his rear? Does anyone know what this is?

Weve had spiders before but not seen this? and cant contact the breeder until tomorrow...

We have checked humidity and temp, we have noticed he is a little uneasy on his legs too

Any help much appreciated x

Any pics of it?
Is it liquidy?
Where from it's abdomen is it coming from?

I've no idea what it might be, maybe some more detail would help.

will send some pics give us two mins - it is liquidy with little white solid balls. The liquid came from where his web spinners are

That I can't explain. The most I've seen is dark yellow, but never orange. But from what you describe, it sounds like poo. Unfortunately, I know nothing of determining a tarantulas health based on what color it's poop is.... If it is poop.
