    My tiny A. bicoloratum sling looks like it's in premolt, it has a big and very shiny butt... It was carrying a ball of substrate and walking on a plastic leaf that it has as a hide. Suddenly it slipped and fell on its back, still holding the ball of dirt :hilarious: One of the cutest things I've ever seen.

    My 1.5" T. ockerti butt threatened me for the first time since I got it at 1/2". My baby is growing up :)

    Misses sorted the first sac of C. elegans, and tomorrow will be sorting another. Over the weekend more elegans to sort. This sac ended up with a total of 94 in it.

    My B.Vagans finally came out to play with a new birthday suit after 2-3 months burrowed. Now around 3" or so.

    My other Pterinochilus lugardi sling moulted. Also noticed that my Poecilotheria metallica refused its food, so I removed it. Colours are darkening so I believe it's gone in to premoult.

    Another sac sorted with 79 slings. The C. elegans are producing fertile clutches and I can't fuss about that. Sorting out a third one tomorrow and it was a bit larger so hopefully better numbers.

    My OBT stuck its feet out after 4 months of being burrowed. Good - I was getting worried. Now, if it could come out completely please, so I can see how big it is?

    And I think both of my H. pulchripes slings are male :grumpy:. Not absolutely sure yet, though.

    And I do suspect my 'confirmed female' P. pulcher is also a male. If this suspicion gets confirmed I'll be really pissed off :rage::punch:. I absolutely love this spider.

    Mine has always been out and about, but has decided to disappear. Hope it doesn't get to 4 months though...

    In other news, I decided to redo the enclosure my P. cambridgei due to the gap between the cork bark and the lid being too small. Shaved off a bit of the cork bark and took out a bit of sub and now it's satisfactory. I was expecting a long drawn out battle but it was relatively calm. Guessing it's in premolt.

    My little male jumping spider chilled out in his favorite hiding spot (inside a spray bottle nozzle) and supervised while I fed the Ts. Just as I wrapped up feeding, he emerged and hopped back into his enclosure when I offered it to him. Perfect timing!
    Later, outside the spider room, I carved a spooder pumpkin. I think it needs some fuzziness!

    Rehoused my Caribena versicolor sling, last night. It's now in a 32oz deli cup for the next few moults. I could have kept it in its old enclosure for another moult but it would have been more difficult rehousing it later.

    I didn't think my new arrival G. Pulhripes would eat but offered a meal worm last evening. Wouldn't even come out of her hide as I expected. Killed it and dropped it in the empty water dish with plans of removing it this morning if still there. To my surprise my little spidy had dragged it to another corner and was administering CPR. Sadly the mealworm didn't make it.

    RIP mealworm. My G. pulchripes sling was like this when I first got her too. She wants to be a lifeguard when she grows up. She's already moved up to assisting superworms. They grow up so fast...
