I've been researching all day, and haven't found a good answer. My Gooty started molting Saturday. Earlier today after waking up, I carefully checked on it and it molted great, so I thought. Then I discovered what looked like a dry string of webbing hanging from its mouth. I started looking up stuff before work, left it some water, and read horror stories about nematodes all day.

After I came home from work I checked again, its now just a dry white speck in its mouth. Could it be feces? Did webbing somehow get stuck in its mouth while molting? Is it part of its molt? Has a Tarantula consumed its webbing before?

Im no expert but,

Does your tarantula drink excessively?

Is your tarantula wild caught?

Where did you acquire your substrate?

Where do you get your food sources?

I believe that is poop... Not the best picture but it definitely does not look like anything harmful so need not worry. Never seen this with my Poecilotheria but I have many o' times with my Avicularia. Look up on here the many threads on this topic with Avicularia, they're usually the main poop eating culprit. Lol
