This is the shed skin of my baby chile rose tarantula.
It was quite hard to get as i had only daylight to use plus the structures are quite thick and it was dificult to select the focus point!
First the eye area:


The area around the mouth:


A palp joint


another palp joint, closer to the foot (not the thick black hairs)


This is the sternum, with a furrow in the middle


Finally a view of the underside of the carapcae, near the leg joints

The fangs were very hard to photograph as they are curved upwards, so i made a video showing them at various focus points.
I extended this to the length of the body:

hope this works!

Also I did the same with a foot, which is very thick and dense, impossible to get a flat image:

I, for one, probably would never pick a tarantula as a pet, but I know a lot of people have them. The eye section of the shed skin looks very cool. So, your pet spider is named "Pepsi" He sure does like those crickets. Very Happy
I had snakes for awhile and they were fun to feed Very Happy

On another note...as an administrator of the site, I have to remind you of the image posting guidelines: The posting limit is three (3) images in each Image Gallery every 24 hrs. Take care, Doug

No Pepsi is another Tarantula that belongs to another user of the site.

Absolutely! Ive been fascinayed with spiders ever since I was a kid-I used to be known as Boris the Spider by my family when a board game was brought out with that name.
Most of my family still calls me Boris to this day!

Oh I also have a pet House Spider too, a Tegenaria duellica:

Indeed,nearlyu 3 inches legspan, legs not fully extended, and its not fully grown yet!

I saw one in the shed the other day that was much bigger, and I nearly jumped thru the roof as it was on the back of the door as I was about to exit!
