I just got my FIRST tarantula, a juvenile avicularia avicularia, about an inch and a quarter long! My question is, when do they start to lose the pattern on their abdomen? I'd like to get a better idea of how old it is, and I dont know when she last molted, she was at petsmart for MONTHS.

At that size probably no older than a year. They usually start to lose their pattern around 3". It just really varies. Congratulations on your new addition! :)
