    So I hope this thread can become a long, ever growing one. If you have a spider molt, post it here the day it happens. I think it would be cool to see how many people can have a spider or spiders molt the same day.

    So let's hear it. Who molted today?

    P. irmina

    Was showing signs, was still up and about today around noon. I walked back into my room at 4 and it had already finished a molt.

    Went from ~1.5" to 2". I'll add exact measurements later.

    This past week:
    L. parahybana - 6.5" to 7.25"
    H. lividum - No clue how much size gained

    One more molt and he/she will probably be all adult colored :D

    Had my ~.5" Versi molt 2 days ago. I swear she didn't grow more than a millimeter, but I guess I'll see when she finally comes out of her funnel. They look super cool right after molting... light blue body, red fangs (and mouth area).

    I have 90 Ts... I have molts every week. None today, but 5 over the weekend and 3 yesterday...

    Includes my 6.5" pulchripes female from Haplofool, a 2i to 3i sling, a faciatum, 2 vagans. One of my communal boys (P. formosas) also molted and is well over 4" DLS. I record them all on my T log, otherwise, I cannot keep up with them all!

    I love Irminias... one of mine molted again recently and is going to have to be rehoused... again.

    Fantastic idea.
    I can not vouch for the exact molt day but, Three of my G pulchra have surfaced from their hides in the past week. A fourth should be out very soon.
    I have a MF T. stirmi that molted May 31 (exactly 20 weeks from her last molt).

    One of my Stromatopelma calceatum slings moulted sometime last night! It was about 2.5cm. I'm not sure how much growth has occured as I can't see the spider. I'll add it later if I get to measure it.

    Great idea Chris! :)

    My Stent's whistling T (Phlogius sp.) molted sometime between 10pm 06-03-11 and 1am 06-04-11. Haven't retrieved the exuvium or gotten a good look at the spider yet as it molted underneath cover. Got a pic from the entrance to its burrow, you can definitely see the color of fresh sling molt on the legs.

    Well it probably wasn't today, but inside the last two days my 4-1/2" L. Violaceopes molted out mature at somewhere around 6-1/2" to 7". It was rediculous how much bigger it got. He's still soft, but I got him packed up and dropping him off with a friend to start the breeding cycle!

    Happy to have my first T fully mature, but sad its not a beautiful blue/purple lady :(
