    Yesterday: G. acteon, now subadult female, and she still has a red butt :(. No all black G. actaeon for me.

    A. seemanni, and I could confirm it's really a female :).

    Today my A geni. finallyyy molted for the first time since I've gotten it (Jan 1st)! I had a feeling it would be soon after it refused to eat for about a week and a half, but I didn't know it would take another 3 weeks! Definitely worth the wait as my little baby is a little bigger :) Molting time was inbetween 7:00 am- 2:00 pm.
    ~.5 to ~.75
    Can't wait to see if it's a little more black than brown now, it's currently all white with a black abdomen. :) I never knew I would be so proud of the little guy/gal.

    My B. vagans sling, day before yesterday. He (or she) went from 5/8" to approximately 1", maybe a tad bigger.

    I had a couple molts this week. My L. klugi sling molted but I wasn't able to sex it. Still just a wee bit too small. It's now at around 2 inches in DLS so hopefully next molt :)

    My N. chromatus juvenile molted Thursday morning. This was its second molt under my care, having molted last October as well. I suspected that it was male but I couldn't sex it last time because I couldn't get to the shed for over two weeks after the molt. This time I got it a day after the molt so I was able to sex it. Turns out "Aegon" is actually "Visenya" so I'm quite thrilled.

    Stunning. Absolutely stunning.

    Not sure if you read the thread regarding mesh lids but they can trap T's foot hooks.

    I'm pretty miffed. My P.Tigrinawesseli lass had left a little hole so I could just see her progress. Well she's been busy last night and completely sealed herself in. See you in 6 weeks gorgeous.

    Thankyou. :)

    Yeah I know about the mesh lids. All but a couple if mine are modded. I put this girl in this temp enclosure as soon as I got her and havent mod it yet as didnt want to disturb her. Now she has moulted I have made the changes.

    I woke up this morning and to my surprise I found one of my purported B. vagans to have molted overnight. Not sure about his condition because I had to go to work but it's exciting knowing one of my 7 slings molted!

    I'm very interested to hear more on this species as they grow. I have two P. sazimai slings, but one can never have enough blue Ts!

    2" A. avicularia, (suspect male) Gomez. He didn't seem to gain much in size, and he was pretty thirsty afterward. As soon as his last leg detached and he stretched for a minute, he crawled into the water cap, all but his abdomen, and hung out there for a while before climbing back into his hammock to rest.
