    I had the oppertumity to watch my 7" L striatipes molt last night and WOW! a giant shedding always keeps me glued to the enclosure, I havent had alot of experience w/ the species and I know Large specimen are not at all common so I decided to post some pix for others like me who have had limited experence w/ these giants, South America deffinately produces some larger than life T's and L striatipes surely is one of the heavyweights, neat spiders, ENJOY, B.
