    After two and a half hours or so, Thrixopelma ockerti successfully molted, and bragged it’s freshly molted vibrant look of it.

    Soon to be molted, I hope, Caribena versicolor is rehoused. It grew quite large for the last enclosure, and I guess it might be better to have more space to move around, and to molt.

    • Old enclosure

    Caribena versicolor molted, and molted successfully. I love how after each molt, it changes, grows out of it’s coloration. It’s just amazing.

    I just found out that Theraphosa blondi molted. I can’t say for sure when exactly, but it’s not that long ago. Too bad I missed it.

    I just love when tarantulas pull or drag out their old skin ouf of their burrows and throw them outside. Recently molted Theraphosa blondi didi it very nicely.

    Aphonopelma bicoloratum molted. It is still so tiny. It is definitely slow growing tarantula.

    Finally, I decided to rehouse Webbie, Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens into the permanent enclosure. It took a year and a little more to grow into juvie from sling stage, and still long way to go to be matured.

    Theraphosa blondi is indeed growing so fast. From April of this year to today, for about eight months, it outgrew every tarantulas I have.

    • April

    For Encyocratella olivacea, it’s currently in the process of molting.

    Two of Caribena versicolor molted, one large, one small. Both molted just fine.

    Four molted. Two of them are well hidden, and are managed to throw out their old skin outside of their dens.

    Out of many tarantulas going through pre molting, Pterinochilus murinus decided to molt out of it’s old skin while I was at work. It gained a bit of size, and it might be good to rehouse it with larger enclosure soon.

    Poecilotheria metallica is trying hard to molt at the moment. I am just so curious how large it will get once it’s finished.

    Orphnaecus philippinus molted. I really love it’s true spider looking shape of body, and it’s solid orange color. I cannot wait to feed it again!
