I might be a mature male nearing the end of his life. Do you have any pictures of the pedipalps or pictures of the front legs from the side?I have noticed that my Mexican red rump has started to eat less and I also noticed that he is loosing hair on the back of his abdomen.
This^^^ or Some NW's spread hairs around the enclosure as a defense. My B vagans is about bald on the abdomen as can be, and completely fine. She's ugly, but healthy. I'd kill for a molt. They also quit eating for a multitude of reasons. Just keep water in the dish. But do post pics like @Ungoliant asked. If it is a MM, he needs a date. Give him a purpose if it's a him.I might be a mature male nearing the end of his life. Do you have any pictures of the pedipalps or pictures of the front legs from the side?
It's unfortunately part of the tarantula keeping hobby. Males only last 3-6 years, and they don't get as big. But, on the plus side, if you can find someone who wants to breed that species, you can often sell or trade the MM and get more tarantulas.Thanks all I got this guy on the 22 March and within a week of having him he molted, so I guess his on his way out Very sad as the kids were loving him
