not sure if the body behind it is a molt or a dead male, or a dead different type of tarantula...hmmm...any suggestions?
This is something in the Aphonopelma genus but I'm not sure about tarantulas in Texas. It's much easier in my state where we have just one species. :-)
WOW! Never seen a molt before. Awesome find!
The item behind the tarantula is most definitely a molt. You caught this one looking its very best! Nice spotting.
