    Hi all,

    Here I am again, showing off my favorite of all favorites.
    This is the second time that he molted since I got him, and he just amazes me after every molt...

    Here is a pic of him after his second last molt, munching down on a juicy mealworm:

    And this is him after his last molt, which was yesterday...
    As you can see he lost his neat pattern on his abdomen, but he got a lot bigger! And even the black with the few lighter colored hairs look cool :).

    You may find that although the abdominal pattern seems to have gone, it may still be visible (although quite muted and faint) once it fattens up again. When my 2 P. nigricolors lost the bright orange, I observed the zig-zag pattern was still apparent even 2 instars after it "seemed" to go away. (I hope that makes some sense..:confused:)

    Nice spider, my "platyomma" is going to molt soon too.

  6. They grow up so quickly....

    It astonishes me how much platyommas grow and change with each molt. Nice pics, Dennie.
