More Blue by pitbulllady More Blue by pitbulllady
Another shot of my little Homoeomma sp. tarantula(which I believe has been re-named species Thrixopelma cyanen), taken at a different angle, with a full-spectrum light instead of the regular old yellow household lighting. I wanted to see if it would make her blue irridescence show up better, and it did, a bit, but she is still comparatively dull-colored right now because she needs to moult.

the light hair on her abdoman makes her seems deflated or something o.o or maybe it's just my perception.

She definately doesn't look "deflated"; check out the other picture I have up of her. At this time, her abdomen is actually swollen, which is a good indicator of a tarantula getting ready to moult, as fluid builds up between the old and new exoskeleton, although I saw this spider months ago at another reptile show, and she was pretty fat then, too. She does have that light "mirror patch"-a patch of highly irridescent hairs-on her abdomen, which some tarantula species possess, for unknown reasons.

yeah. I was just saying that it almost looks like it's deflated at first glance. o.o that's all.
