    I pulled out a ball of web with "pieces" in it yesterday. I couldn't tell if it was old cricket limbs or my C. cyan's molted skin. It seemed like too many pieces/legs to be cricket waste and my GBB does look bigger. Question: do T's roll up their exuvium? I'll be really bummed if so. I was hoping to have a cool collection of her growth. :(

    From what I've seen my T's usually leave the moults alone when finished. Could be that your T was messy when eating and that could explain the extra parts you are seeing. If your T looks fatter it could just be from a recent meal. Or maybe you just have a "neat freak" T that just didn't like those old clothes laying around LOL
    You never know though, stranger things have been known to happen :)
