O.K., this might sound strange, but my female Rio Grande Gold has a HUGE butt!! (Sorry, Californiaspeak!) My Aphonopelma moderatum's opisthosoma seems unnaturally large! When I handle her, it kind of bounces up and down, like it's not attached right or something. And, when she's resting on my hand, she'll use her back 2 legs like a stand, putting them under her abdomen. Approximately 1 month ago, I noticed a pinhole oozing slowly, but not slowly enough that it would clot. So I put a dab of Super Glue on it and it's been fine since then... there's just a tiny little scab left. She appears to be approximately 20 days away from molt, and is in extremely good health. She's a great eater... I have never heard of a case of TARANTULA GOT BACK, any ideas?:?
