Tarantula
Matilda, my pet Brazilian Salmon Pink Bird Eating Spider has stopped eating, and her abdomen has turned black. Why am I not worried?

Answer:

Lack of appetite and darkening of the abdomen are signs that the spider is getting ready to molt. The spider's exoskeleton does not grow, so as the spider grows, it must shed old exoskeletons that are too small.
