Hey everyone, today I purchased a female indian ornamental, the guy in the store told me that no one really wanted her because she has only one pedipalp and she is missing her two front legs so I bought her in hope that I can manage to renew her.

I was wondering if within maybe 3-4 molts will she grow her pedipalp back and her two front legs? I hate seeing a deformed tarantula and I only hope that she will one day grow them back, please provide information on regrowth and if you think my T will grow them back. :( :(

Thanks everyone.

It normally only takes 2 or 3 molts to regenerate lost limbs. They will eventually be completely regenerated and good as new.
