PICTURES ATTACHEDPerfectly said.
On the contrary, i do understand why a picture is important and i have explained why I have delayed them. What i do not understand is why everybody needs a picture to answer some basic questions that are not picture related such as how to dissolve the hardened residue I talked about.
An entomologist just told me that these liquids are enzyme driven and once hardened are not known to be water soluble. But with new science emerging everyday there might exist a trick (e.g. HCO3 and H2O2 for skunks smell) As said, I did try to remove it and it did not came off. Someone could have answered this question without a picture. And yes, maybe there is a solution for that but right now i did not find the person that knows about it.
Now, besides the reasons I have explained why i did not take pictures i must add that i do not have a macro lens nor tripod. I tried initially (right before I wrote that post) to do with my smartphone what you have suggested but i do not have stabilization and pictures where either too fuzzy are not accurate enough.
This is the best I can do with my knowledge, i will not risk untangling these fragile legs to provide more insight.
Now, again, i am simply asking you guys to "picture" an upside down tarantula (with new exoskeleton) with on top its complete exuviae, both inverted, both fused at the cephalothorax. Otherwise you will not be able to make sense of these picture i think. Again (sorry about repeating myself) all the legs are really out and there is absolutely no spacing whatsoever between the two cephalothoraxes and nothing has evolved whatsoever since friday morning.
Cool Blood last statements goes in the direction I was thinking about when the new exoskeleton is going to be more hardened.
Hope these pictures will help.
Thank you very much for your inputs.
