I need help. I’m so confused. My P. Sp Columbia just molted again and it’s no longer yellow/gold. It looks like a P. sp blue now. Do they lose their yellow/gold?? This is so weird. It’s sac mate is smaller and hasn’t gotten it’s adult colors yet. Please help

Thanks for your reply. Mine is lil larger than yours. It looked just like yours until it molted the other day. I have it’s sac mate, but it’s smaller and hasn’t gotten it’s adult colors yet. It’s just so weird that the yellow/gold went away with this molt.

Hi
Juvenile tarantulas going through colour changes as they age is not unusual .
Tbh I would have thought that the yellow will be more visible as it nears maturity but mine are too young to tell for sure although I see more yellow with each molt they have.

Here is link of what adult should look like in case you haven't seen it.
Regards Konstantin
