Legere Posted May 5, 2008 Share Posted May 5, 2008 Hi I'm new here and the main reason I'm here is to see if any of you have dealt with this before.. I have a female Rose Hair and she has a dime sized spot on her rump that appears to be dry skin? Is this a pre molting sign? After further studying her bum, I took a qtip and rubbed where it's dry looking and "fluff" came off of where it appears dry and in a large quantity... I'm so CONFUSED!!! Another thing I have noticed as of today is that she is fiercly attacking her crickets but now not eating them... she will hunt them down and bite them and then not follow through with eating. All I can think is to take the remaining cricket out and will try again in a few days. HER STATS: She is approx 1year old, 3 1/2 inches long from fangs to bum and molted approx 4-5 months ago which the molt was fully intact. She is in a ten gallon tank with a large water dish (filled with the blue jelly like substance) and I keep it filled at all times. She is a healthy eater and has a misting every so often. Her tank is not dry but has an area where there is a live oat grass plant (cat grass) keeping pet soil moist on one side of tank, on other side is drier where she has built her web. She is a friendly (so to speak) spider and is not aggressive whatsoever to our hands but I'm concerned that for some reason she is becoming cranky. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm worried about this dry spot!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
