    So both my Grammostola pulchripes unsexed juvies decided to moult at the exact same time today. One 3" unsexed and the other at 4".

    I Knew both were in premoult for a while now and the new skin arrivals were imminent. I had a feeling the larger specimen was going to flip so I prepared to make a quick time-lapse video of the process.

    I had not long started the time lapse on the larger specimen when I noticed the other pulchripes had flipped too. So I thought might get them both at the same time.

    ..And so I did. Heres the video :)



    After leaving them to it for a while I returned to check on them and once they were finishing up I grabbed the exuviae.

    It would be nice if the smaller specimen turned out male and the larger female right?

    .. right :)

    How awesome is that? I finally am able to understand and see the spermathecae on molts like in that picture. As for the male, the fact there's "nothing" indicates male, right..?

    Cool anatomy pics too.

    But that IS what happened... the smaller one is the male and the bigger one is the female.

    Oh i thought the "right..." was supposed to mean that you turned out to be wrong, and I was confused.

    Just thought I would share another couple of photos. I love how fresh the pink setae looks when moulted. They young male is starting to get more fluffy and the female has a nice amount now :)
