My N. vulpinus molted yesterday,
Man does it look sweet now.
Did you catch the fact I didn't call it "her" anymore.:(
I would have bet money it was a female, going into this molt. But after inspecting its skin, and looking at its front legs, I beleive she is a he. Theres no tibal hooks, so its not mature yet.
I guess I better start looking for a mature female now. Hopefully it wont molt again for a year or so

Too bad, so sad,

Ernie

Your looking at it correctly, its abdomen is 3 times smaller than it was. Thats another reason I think it a boy.

A beautiful spider, whatever its sex. I just love the "fuzziness" :)
