    It is very much in pre-molt. You should expect a molt within 10 days I'd say for sure.

    Nah man, it's not even close. That T isn't gonna molt for at least 10 more hours...

    Id increase the heat and mist it a few times today and the next few days to increase the humidity and I wouldnt be surprised if your T. molted soon

    Is that bald spot from kicking hairs, or is it one of the indications of premolt? Also I have heard that misting Ts just pisses them off... is that only specific species (such as desert varieties) or is it just differing opinions?

    Well Ive always misted my Ts accept for my G. rosea or brachy. I also live in Ut there is very low humidity here. When I mist I try not to shoot the T directly and most dont throw threat poses. You always have your OBTs and others that throw down no matter what though. Also when I say mist I use a very fine mist that ends with very few drops of water running around but more of a light feeling.

    The bald spot is from kicking hairs. The indication of premolt is that the spot is black instead of pink.

    why you gotta ruin my fun ana ;)


    on a serious note i figured people always ask this question. and it would be good for people too see what premolt really looks like. so hopefully at least 1 person learned something from opening this.

    @ etown411 lol at the not even close. give it 10 hours.
