    I gave Chilobrachys Sp. Electric Blue the small cricket yesterday. With a little bit of hesitation at first, it eventually took the cricket and ate it. To explain what that hesitation was all about, it molted today.

    Grammostola pulchra is in the process of molting at the moment. It’s always so exciting, and nervous at the same time to witness your tarantula molting.

    Nah, just having a soak in the tub. Digging is hard work.

    Not so much of an update, but one feeding video featuring Poecilotheria metallica, and one feeding picture featuring Pamphobeteus antinous.

    Ornithoctonus aureotibialis gave me threat posture for the first time, for watering it’s substrate, and stayed like that for twelve minutes straight.

    After weeks of pre molting period, Webbie, Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens finally decided to molt, and molt sucessfully.

    First of all, I had so much fun yesterday at the Repticon 2018, Los Angeles. I got myself Brachypelma auratum for $40. I also got myself superworms for decent price too.

    Next up, Grammostola iheringi. It is so ready to molt. Let’s do this safe and sound.

    Finally, Orphnaecus philippinus molted. I was longing for this moment so long. I am so happy.

    Lucky, I want one of those and that's a good price. How big is it?

    It’s the small sling. I would say around 1/4”.

    I just did notice Dolichothele diamantinensis molted, yet it still looks pretty plump though. That is not exactly a bad thing, but I am just curious since some tarantulas get really really skinny after molt, and some do not.

    1/4” Aphonopelma mooreae molted for the first time under my care. How much it grew from it I am not so sure of, it is still so tiny.
