Advertisement Hello, I have a Brachypelma Auratum male, he has had a rather large bald spot on his abdomen for weeks now. He has molted twice since I got him, but those bald spots were different. They were black with not a lot of hair. Now it is tan, like skin color and there isn't any micro hairs or long hair. He still takes one meal a week without hesitation. He is my first T that I ever bought. 5 months ago. He is the one that got me into the hobby and now I have 11 Ts total! But judging by this picture, do you think he is getting to the point where he might pass away soon?
