    Just discovered my female O schioedtei molted within the last couple days.. really came as a suprise as her last molt wasnt too long ago.

    Didnt gain much growth, but her peg leg appears fully formed amd normal again, and her carapace is that stunning jadeish green now. Very pretty jet black with those fine, firey red setae!

    Now roughly 4.75" maybe. Pix coming soon

    Nhandu Number 5 (carapoensis) - finally.
    Ybyrapora diversipes #2. I'll never get my Ybyrapora juveniles sexed - the molt is always inaccessible in their webs until they destroy it :(

    Perhaps her body forfeited the growth and sped up times between moltsin favor of restoring the limb

    I've been slacking on the posts, B. boehmei sling moulted today.

    Within the last week:

    B. vagans sling
    A. musculosa (now a confirmed female)
    P. subfusca LL (now 2.25")

    I definitely agree on the forfeiting growth part, but typically a spider has a longer timespan between molts if its doing regeneration in my experience. The girl DID have her leg partially restored already so it could be plausible though. She just molted maybe in mid/late july so its definitely a nice suprise!

    Lasiodora parahybana #2 "Viserion" molted. Around an inch.

    Nhandu coloratovillosus #2 molted, the smallest of my 3, was hoping it was a girl, but its a boy. So I have 2 boys, if the last one is also a boy I'm gonna :banghead::banghead::banghead:. It's in premolt though so should find out soon, knowing my bad luck it'll be a male too.

    Grammostola acteon female #1. Molt was 5", spider is just slightly bigger. They look a lot like G. iheringi, but are obviously a lot smaller.

    I wondered where she went. i havent really seen her since she moulted last. Saw her outside of her burrow tonight wearing a new dress. She has stretched roughly 1.5" too. Getting big. Ahhhh she is stunning ! :)
