Hello everyone, I recently purchased a couple of spiders from a guy who was moving out of state. He was selling all of his collection for 10 bucks with the exoterra enclosures included. Of course I went for the nice one. I got my hands in a juvenile golden red rump. My question is are these spiders rarely active? I notice it just lingers in the same spot and doesn't move unless I move it forcefully. I've never had any other T do this. Earlier I took it out of the enclosure and it seemed healthy cuz it even kicked some of its hairs. Lol, but I kinda noticed the rump area didn't have the usual bald pattern as it normally does when getting ready to molt. It had more of a yellowish/white color. My moms T recently died and I've been doing research on causes of death. The only thing I thought of was a bad molt or nematodes. So I'm kinda paranoid right now wondering if that's a symptom that this juvenile is showing. It ate right away when I first bought it and this was a week ago. The Close up pic is what I'm talking about. Notice how it looks weird. The second pic is when I first got it.
