    C. versicolor 01 molted today! I'm so excited, I've been waiting for these guys to start popping. I could tell they were close and it's been so long since I've had a sling this small molt. I forgot how exciting it is. And no-- I didn't give it food. That mini meal worm was leftover from it's last offered meal. I carefully pulled it from the web so the sling wouldn't be tempted to nibble before their fangs are hardened.

    My seven inch fatty "Cruella" only molted six months ago but decided it was time again! This is the first time out of her burrow since the molt.

    C versicolor now approximately 2"+/-

    Still no real color change. I may see a bit of fuscia, but could be the acrylic reflecting. Ill bother it with a flashlight later 20170912_184303.jpg 20170912_184315.jpg

    My adult 0.1 Homoeomma sp. blue is molting today... I think. She's refused food for about 8 months, has sported a dark butt for about one month, made her molting hammock 2 days ago and just sat on it and this morning finally got around to turning on her back and getting comfortable. I really hope she will have molted when I get home but I wouldn't bet on it. She's very slooowww in everything she does.

    My juvenile G.Pulchra moulted last night, and I believe I can confirm it's a male... but not a lot of experience sexing, so will verify again the next time around.

    Was around 2.5"-3", now looking closer to 3.5"-4"

    Yes. She molted. And she's a he. :sour:. I bought him two years ago as an 'molt confirmed' female. Unfortunately I failed to confirm that myself - I think his only other molt was too messed up to properly sex. Now it's obvious - very conspicious hooks. o_O:arghh:. I'm also conspiciously annoyed.

    On a more positive note, my largest G. pulchra molted, too - and she's still a she and still rather small - molt is 3.5" and she doesn't look all that much bigger.

    Edit: I just looked it up - I had two molts from him. Why didn't I ever check them??

    I woke up this morning to see that my Brachypelma boehmei and my Davus pentaloris had molted. :D These are the two I'm most eager to see grow since they're still so young and small. I have a P. scrofa who has been in premolt for what seems like 100 years. Can't wait for her to get some new clothes as she seems terribly uncomfortable and cranky as of late.

  19. Woke up to a molted C. cyaneopubescens. The faulty leg now looks completely normal. I have no pictures because he has decided to molt under the heaviest area of webbing. He did push the molt out of the webbing, though. Definitely a male. I better start studying packing!

    Adult female P.metallica, probably around 6.5 inches now. Was a solid 6 before the molt. She's more black this molt than the bright blue she normally is, I've heard metallicas do that as they get bigger/older though. Molt was crunchy so she probably molted a few days ago, will throw some pics up on the genus gallery later, can't now as my phones not charged enough to use the flash. :p
