    My B vagans molted recently and outgrew its enclosure. It could almost touch both sides of the enclosure at the same time.

    I know, I know, I should have rehoused it a while ago, but I could never get a good look at it. It kept scurrying into its burrow, and it was hard to judge the size when it was underground.

    My P. sazimai #1 just molted last night. This morning it was walking around dragging the molt around by the tip of the abdomen. I grasped the molt with tongs, held it still, and let the T pull itself away. Hoping to see more and more blue color on these little guys.

    Update: coaxed it out of the hide to measure, and it's 1 inch DLS now. Not much blue yet.

    Finally my A. Avic has molted. She grew from 2.5" DLS to 4.0 DLS. She's so pretty.

    juvi female O. schioedtei - at least I hope she molted because all I saw was one leg from a molt outside her dirt curtain web :shifty:

    And I think my new P. ornata molted, too. Another case where I can't see too well, but I think I counted more than 8 legs. It would explain why it hasn't eaten in my care yet.

    Can't wait for her to come out completely. Any day now, she'll come out and spread against the glass, and I'll get to see how big she's getting! Couple more molts, and she'll be an arachnophobe's worst nightmare..... muahaha:vamp:

    My A. geniculata sling today, and this week my five M. balfouri, it looks like a mass-molt, because they ALL are bigger (I can see them now, they really are tiny tarantulas and not moving microballs anymore ^^ ).

    My 1" Lasiodora klugi molted this morning, sometime during the hour after I dropped a cricket in there for it. Glad I checked back on it, or I may have found a fat cricket and some tarantula legs. :eek: In my defense, I wasn't sure if it was in premolt or not.

    Came home from work and discovered my gbb had moulted, looked all intact and healthy. Also found a moult at the entrance to my B. vagans burrow. Have not seen spider yet, but moult looked like everything went well. Two in one day.

    My GBB just mooted. It's funny too because I just posted a pic from this afternoon and posted about how she was going to burst very soon. Just got home and bam!

    Poecilotheria sp. lowland molted yesterday, another new acqisition that has done nothing but hide and molt for me yet. But I hope that's going to change soon.

    Today: 1.0 G. actaeon. I want to know if he's mature now but he's only showing me his butt. Not helpful :shifty:. The molt was already 6", so chances are he's a MM now.

    Edit: He turned around and he's NOT mature. I didn't think the males of this species would get that big! And I checked the molt again: he's definitely a male.
