    Only photo I have of her and she's smaller than my fingernail so she is going to take some work to get bigger.

    Lol yeah they're diddy, she has darkened up so she should moult soon.
    The patch of hair on the slings abdomens just looks like a receding hairline or toupé.

    Oddly, I don't know why, but whenever I throw prey in lately, she seems to ignore it and by the time I come back the next morning, it's dead.
    I can't tell whether she's killed it so it stops annoying her but not eaten it because she isn't hungry, or, she's eaten it in the usual spider way and it's just the carcass left. She's eating tiny crickets, same as the rest of my animals are on but she gets the smallest ones I can find in the tub.

    Any ideas?

    Whenever I feed my other ones btw including my house spider, there's no remains left of the prey.
