    That's funny. My Psalmopoeus cambridgei (molted two days ago) began her molt in that same position. By the end, she was in a more typical position on her back/side.

    Yeah, it was funny, and interesting to watch it same time.

    Poecilotheria metallica molted today. Since it’s abdomen was quite plump, I was expexting it to molt, and it happened while I was still at work. All is good. I can’t see it for sure, but it looks like it went well.

    This female Grammostola pulchra of mine finally molted on May 21, 2018 after almost two years of having no molting, then decided to molt again yesterday. I am happy, and amazed at the same time.

    Old molt & new molt side by side

    I can’t quite see everything so clearly, but the molting seems went successfully, I hope.

    Poecilotheria metallica dragged out it’s own molt. Good girl!

    Pterinochilus murinus is currently preparing to molt.

    Grammostola iheringi molted overnight. Too bad I missed the whole scene, but I am just glad it went well.

    After three months, and three molts, two of my little Grammostola pulchra grew from 1/4” to almost 3/4”. I guess they are now done with burrowing.

    I was at the ‘Reptile Super Show - Pomona Fairplex’ today. My first time visiting, and experiencing ever. It was super fun! No wonder why so many people were there.

    I got myself Hysterocrates laticeps, and Aphonopelma bicoloratum slings from @JoeRossi, and from other vendor, my first ever scorpion, Hadrurus arizonensis, and finally some superworms.

    It was so much fun, and I already am looking forward to next reptile show.

    Theraphosa blondi is in the mood for molting at the moment.

    Harpactira pulchripes molted while I was still at work. It was already doing some yoga session when I came home. I was kind of expecting it to be happened about tonight, but I guess it doesn’t work that way. It’s alright though, all is well.

    One by one, taking a turn. This time, Pamphobeteus antinous is in mood for molting. I wanted to get some clear pictures of it, but I don’t want to go about and risk to bother the currently molting tarantula, so this is all I could get for now.
