when i got my heterometrus spinifer about 3 months ago it was jet black and his shell has turned a dark grey i think hes only on 4th instar so i don think its old age and there is no sign of him having a moult.

any input or explanation would be greatly appreciated

thanks

I don't see why he would have appeared to change colour unless he molted, burrowed & therefore got dirty or was just the light.
