Hello I'm new to the tarantula hobby and i just got my first T a couple weeks ago and I've actually posted questions of what actual species she was because it was mislabeled in the store. But anyway I'm worried about that she is very shy and i don't know if she is eating correctly. I have like 2-3 crickets in there and so far I have only found one half-eaten. The T is approximatly 4" and it looks like the in back and under it's abdomen there seems to be a lack of hair. Could this lack of hair be because it has not eating well or it is just a male and is close to death? Thank You for any input!
