So hereís my fatty H.judaicus, the cannibalizing fatty possibly gravid female. I noticed some white marking on her side and Iím unsure at what Iím looking at. Could this be wounds from when she cannibalized? What do you guys think?

probably fine sand particles? my HH got a couple of similar looking white spots in between the tergites, at first i thought it was "mycosis" which obviously it isn't and i even tried removing it with a toothbrush lol.. it came off by itself eventually

Well if it is a wound some sand would have gotten on it. I tried to use a moist q-tip to clean it off but I couldnít do it safely she tried to climb the q-tip and tried to tag me twice. Very aggressive specimen I should have noticed this behavior before I put her with my other ones. As you can see her membrane is getting a little reddish so this is making me believe she actually might be gravid. But thereís still the chance that she just got really fat from cannibalizing.

Maybe put her on a fast for a while? See if she gets any smaller?
