The picture of Webbie made me laugh. If a tarantula could pout.. well there it is.
One little sad heartbroken tarantula...

Knitty (Dolichothele diamantinensis) is about two or three times more active after last molt. Lots of webbing, dirt moving action going on daily. Very bold, and not so skittish at all when it comes to hunting preys.
Neo and Trinity are beyond active, it’s more of like super turbo charged hyper active. After recent prison break due to my own mistakes, I get extra cautious with everything I do with these two.
Blackypelma (Brachypelma schroederi) is always so calm, and slow moving, and very relaxing whatever she does. She even grooms herself while lying down.
My other 2.5” female Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens (with no name yet) is doing really well in her new larger enclosure. Her lair is already webbed up pretty decently and is nice looking.
Last, but not the least, Grampu (Grammostola pulchripes) recently became very shy, and skittish. Which I am taking it as a sign of pre molt. That means, I won’t be bothering him or her for awhile.
• Coming soon:
1/2” Ephebopus cyanognathus
1/2” Idiothele mira
O.M.G. That picture of Webbie is so precious I can't stand it. (I will be picking up four GBB slings on thursday Yaaaaay!)
You got some big booties in that collection of yours!
It finally happened, and took me a couple of days to make this time-lapse video.
Awesome video! I've only ever seen videos of T's molting on their back, it was really cool to see the top pop!
Lots of size gained too! Congrats!
That's an amazing video! I really love that you included the flipping back and first stretching part (most moulting videos end right after the spider is out). Thanks a lot for sharing.
How long does it all take?
It was pretty amazing to watch the whole processs.
It took about 2 hours 50 minutes total.
So here they are:
And here’s Oranty (Brachypelma baumgarteni). Already finished molting when I came home.
Congrats on the new T's!
What are you using for water dishes?
It’s a small tattoo ink cup.
It was @miss moxie, who originally gave me this idea.
Nice! Definitely going to give that a go.
This thread reminded me of more simpler days when I just started with my collection...a fun read
What did you get for your very first tarantula?
@BoyFromLA Classic G. rosea, tiny sling, it just sat there, doing nothing, refusing food for first month or so...good times xD
A whole month? That must’ve been really fun...
Webbie (Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens), and Mini (Lasiodora difficilis) are currently molting at the moment.
How is the little I. mira doing? Has it done any excavation yet?
It sure loves to dig here and there, but not so much majorly.
