    P. regalis sling molting right now.

    This is my fastest grower so far. Even faster than my LPs.

    (suspect)B vagans sling molted last night! I could barely sleep! Attached is a bad blurry picture. I didn't want to bother the sling today, so I'll get better pictures soon. Not sure about size yet? Maybe 1/2-3/4" is now 3/4-1" ? I'm not sure. The sling looks bigger, but still has a ways to go!

    Edit: Looks like it was approximately 3/4"(~2cm) before molting

    I think my P sazamai molted, but the exuvia was so tiny that it might just be a piece of moss.

    We molted today! B. Smithi, grew about half an inch. More molts to come in the future. Need to know how to age her... please. Also, is it bad to have a cricket in a LARGE (29gal) enclosure after a molt? I know it can stress her out, but she seems to be ok for now. Thanks!

    One of my P tigrinawesselli molted recently. It has to be close to 3" now, which mean I really need to rehouse it from its 4x4 AMAC box.

    However, it is still under the mistaken impression it is an obligate burrower so I don't think it is bothered by the lack of space.

    As long as it's happy, that's the goal. My tarantula was pushing herself up against the glass and near mirrors when I brought her home. I figured it out the first week, got her a bigger tank, and she is super duper happy now.

    That is a beautiful T!

    I would suggest making a new post for questions as this thread seems mainly molt reports and not much more.

    as for cricket, do remove it. They have the potential to harm her and/or she may get her fangs damaged if she tries to deal with it. Their fangs are completely soft after a molt and need a period of time to harden up. for little babies inch or less it can just be a week.. it takes longer the older they are though- a couple weeks. You can tell if their fangs are hard once they have turned black.. otherwise just go with a general schedule matching their age/size. Offer only water during this time for their safety.

    also bigger enclosure is not necessarily better and be careful if it is too tall, in that case add a lot of substrate.. it helps with their falls, especially when they have huge butts.

    Yesterday: 1.0 Pamphobeteus vespertinus, not mature yet but at least 5" and getting really colorful. I was a bit surprised since I wasn't expecting him to molt again so soon.

    I just removed exuvia from my P irminia and P ornata enclosures.

    From what I can see, these are rather slow growing species.
