P. Metallica molt

    My 2" or so beauty has been in pre molt for about 2-3 weeks. About an hour and a half ago it started the process. This is one of the faster molts I have seen! It is already out of the skin, all that it needs to do now is sit upright and darken up. As some of you may know, the phone on my camera is kind of crappy, I just wanted to share my joy with yall! I doubt I will be able to recover the molt due to the way the cage is set up and the position the spider molted. =/

    Hopefully I can manage to get some technical luck with the camera and take a good pic after it looks pretty again.

    Hurry, better make a grab at that molt while you can. ;)
  6. Yeah I couldn't get to it safely if I wanted. I just looked and it's tearing apart the molt with its fangs and wrapping it up :p I don't mind though, just glad it made it out alright
