    ok so, I've had emperors but they were all big males. This is my first girl. Does she look more like she's going to molt(I see no cracks in her exo) or gravid? Any input is appreciated . Thanks!

    being she's an adult{what i can see in the pics},she's a biggie,she won't molt anymore,and she looks to be gravid,but not busting out yet,but she's on her way,awesome healthy one at that.good luck:) wild caught females,well some that come in are gravid already,yours looks great.i'm sure she has a good appetite.

    I bought a third AFS because I suspected she might be gravid. No dice, she moulted down to a smaller girth, she was just chunky from presumably a bit of over-feeding. So it could go either way.

    She’s definitely an adult but it’s hard to tell if she’s gravid. She could be gravid or just fat. If you feed her a regular schedule meal and your not over feeding her then she’s lost likely gravid. But if your over feeding her then she could be just overweight. Hope this helps.
