My rose hair lucy died and I don't know what she died of. However the pedicil area looks quite questionable. Any ideas? IMG_20160714_193209.jpg IMG_20160714_193232.jpg

I'm sorry you lost her. Sorry to clog up thread with condolences instead of answers, but when I saw she had a name, Lucy -- I figured she must have been special. :(

Had her for about five years. She never molted in my care and was about 6 inches in leg span.

That seems like. Lifespan. I had a Porteri at 11 years shes 5.5" and it moults once every 2 years.

5 year between moults is a good age.

Yet I am sorry for your loss :(

I've had my porteri for over 15 years, she's molted on a 5 year schedule the entire time. These ts can live a long long time, which is why I never go right to "lifespan"...possible certainly, as we have no idea on how old these WC specimens are...but it would not be a conclusion I would be inclined to jump to unless I had the t for a long time.

Sorry you lost her....was she acting normally prior? Do you have pics of the enclosure?

I don't have any pictures but will be sure to upload some latter today. She was also acting just fine Wednesday.

It's more of the after math science the out side of the hide was under dirt. It was a simple cork bark hide cave. The substrate looks dry but it's just deconstructed from the retrieval of Lucy's remains.
