    Freshly molted LP "Llaves"

    "Huevos", the previous LPs sac-mate taking offense at me filling the water bowl. Or, maybe it's been taking OBT lessons from its neighbor...

    I do believe little B. smithi "Ruatha" will be wearing new clothes soon.

    One of the B. emelias. Unfortunately I didn't mark the pic, but it is probably "Telgar" who has been the most cooperative for photos.

    Freshly molted B. verdezi, "Aramina".

    Love the B.smithi molt picture! Sure hope I am able to see that when one of mine molt. I think my 1" B.albopilosum is getting ready... p.s. Where did you find that big plastic anatomically correct model???

    I'm looking forward to my G. pulchra looking like a G. pulchra vs. a small tan spider with a really big butt...

    0.0.1 Brachypelma boehmei "Lessa" molted today! It also molted 32 days ago. This came a little earlier than expected. The sac mate is half this size with same feeding schedule and same number of molts.

    Yeah, both my LPs are on the defensive side. Huevos, in the defensive pose, is in serious pre-molt at the moment. Llaves just flipped its water bowl as I was trying to fill it.
    More pics tomorrow. One B. emelia on its back, two more emelia, a vagans, the verdezi, a G. rosea and the other B. boehmei all in pre-molt. I just love molting parties!{D

    Thank you! :) Every time I add to my collection and shorten my wish list, I see another species I have to add to it...
