That is odd, even if she did break her fang, why would she be loosing setae on her chelicerae? Could it be an infection of some sort? Not meaning to stress the OP, just a curious inquiry.What's odd to me is that the "stub" looks like it is missing all the setae completely.
Yes, as long as she can eat she should be fine. The real problem is when the lining from their mouth to their sucking stomach doesn't molt properly. Or if both fangs break. Keep us updated on her progress as far as eating and such. I'd be interested in seeing how she does!Thanks for the answers! I guess she'll be ok as long as she eats fine!
Yeah I noticed that too. Probably just got a little stuck in the molt. No biggie. Very cool picture though. I had an A. avicularia that lost both it's fangs one time and I managed to keep it alive with "cricket soup" until it molted again and regenerated them.That out-of-focus horizonal beige streak could be the broken fang everyone is seeing, if it's still attached.
Yes, Ts can regenerate fangs and yes, they can eat with only one. Excellent picture, by the way. What's odd to me is that the "stub" looks like it is missing all the setae completely.
