    Muffet (my juvenile male Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens) surreptitiously molted within the last 24 hours. It's kind of funny, because just last night, I was noticing how he had reinforced the webbing of his main retreat, so I couldn't see him as well. I guess I now know why.

    I can't see him well right now, but I look forward to seeing if he has changed colors. (Previously, the carapace was a bluish orange, so I wouldn't be surprised if it turned blue.)

    My 7/8 inch B. emilia just molted and is now 15/16ths of an inch. Sigh. I honestly don't know which species grows more slowly, B. emilia or Euathlus sp. red.

    On the plus side, you can see the adult coloration very slightly now, and it's among my favorite tarantula patterns.

    Congratulations, it's always nice to get an unexpected surprise. Especially a female Poecilotheria that you thought was a male.

    I've been away for a few days, when we returned I noticed my O. schioedtei had molted, it was sitting around the inch mark, but I've not seen it to give a size. My B. albo molted eventually it looks to have doubled in size, these were just yesterday so I'm still waiting on the B. albo's exoskeleton to harden then open the enclosure and post a good picture. I'm assuming the O. schioedtei has grown a decent amount again, if its first molt in my care is anything to go by, it'll be around 1.5". We'll wait and see, very reclusive sp. to photograph.

    At least two of my 3 C sp Kaeng Krachan molted recently.
