    Well I have this B. Smithi sling that hasn't molted since october I think. It ate a mealworm about 2 weeks ago, it is now refusing food. (Didn't eat his mealworm I left him last night.) I always leave prekilled for this little fella.
    Now that I have the backstory is complete I am taking bets on when he will finally molt. Winner takes all.
    To start im putting $50 on never. Anyone else wanna get in on this lol.

    I hope so, sorry for the low picture quality I tried to hurry as to not disturb him or her.

    you probably should moisten the substrate a bit on one half. slings need added moisture.

    Add some moisture and put it in a warmer location (85f?)

    3 weeks from now is my bet -- it doesn't look very heavily premolt to me (my Homoeomma sp. red sling has been like that for at least a month now).

    My house usually stays between 75 and 80 degrees anyway. I don't have anywhere in my house warmer without running a space heater.
