    My A. geniculata molted a few days ago and I checked in on it this evening and saw it all stretched out across its hide, pokie-style. :)

    Looks like its hugging the glass.

    I originally covered up the top with dirt, but the T kept uncovering it. Now I've just left it and it seems fine with it. It has piled up dirt inside and uses it mainly to eat.

    nice pic becca, my l. striata did the same thing after the last molt. she did this for about a week and the fangs were blood red.
