Advertisement Wow, didn't know that. I guess it's impossible to talk about changing that then Dosen't mean it wasn't pre-molt either. I've seen dozens of pre-molt T's, and not every one shows all the classic signs. But if it was pre-molt or just horribly overfed (unlikely) is not relevant to the discussion. I'm actually a little surprised so many are okay with the status quo. I've always found the idea of "as long as it shows up alive, I'm off the hook" rather odd. I mean, is a 24 hr. grace period really that much to ask?
