    My C versicolor FINALLY molted. Definitely can vouch for the whole, house a sling in too large of an enclosure and they grow like a Rock. She went from 1/2 to 3/4" before to 3/4 to 1" now. Actually it looks like she grew very minimally, so hoping for a female! No pictures and expecting more molts soon :woot::woot:

    Pamphobeteus antinous has shed in the early hours. Can't get a pic but I can see the skin.

    LP slings #1 & #3, "Drogon" and "Rhaegal" both molted, probably both over the inch mark now. Their sibling #2, "Viserion" is also in premolt.

    Also my mystery spider that I found in my house molted to around an inch, I know this is the T section but if anyone could give me an ID I'd appreciate it. ;)

    Sling Poecilotheria metallica. I gave mine sufficient hiding spots, flat cork bark glued to another cork bark. It has taken up residence between the bark pieces and it ditched "terrestriality" altogether, as such Im not sure when it molted, I just saw it throw out an old exoskeleton. Kept on placing legless crickets (so they cant hop around). Caught it last night munching on one of those lose crickets, and probably ate most of them as it's back to it's pre-molt fatness again.

    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.
