Ok when I first got my singapore blues they had hair covering their abdomens when i checked on them today neither of them did...could it just have been the light from the flashlight givin the bald illusion look? or do singapore blues loose their hair for an upcoming molt? since they arent a new world species ( I was told a new world species is defined as being from the states and mexico , puerto rico) they shouldnt go bald right?

Old world Ts only loose hair because of stress, but here is something I noticed with my C. sp. "blue" sling... before every molt, it's abdomen seemed to bald up but in reality it didn't. What I am getting at is this, since their is liquid seperating he new exo from the old I think the abdomen streches giving it a "bald" look. Just my little theory, I've only noticed this with this species. UNless of course your talking about bald like new world T bald.

Also, New World Ts, are from North and South America. Old Worlds are from Asia, Africa, and Australia. I'm not sure what's from Europe.
