    My GBB sling molted last night! Been waiting on that little guy for awhile now, so definitively pleased.

    My Brachypelma albopilosum has just flipped over on to a web mat. Looks like I'm getting a freshly moulted tarantula for Christmas!

    Xenesthis immanis finished up last night. Can't wait to see her new dress.

    1" G. pulchripes sling, still all scrunched up so can't tell how much size gained

    Not the best pics, but I didn’t want to open the enclosure.

    My GBB sling molted today. It’s been quite fat for a while and hasn’t eaten in about two weeks.

    It’s the second molt in a little over a month for the little fella. Or gal. Whichever.

    I was feeding my tarantulas their Christmas dinners (roaches and mealworms), when I noticed Muffet (my juvenile male Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens) wasn't interested, which is unlike him. Lo and behold, there is a molt near the top of his web opposite his main retreat.

    I can't get a good look at him yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing the next stage of his coloring.

    New clothes for Muffet!

    Had a bit of a molting party over here for the holidays - My C. cyaneopubescens, G. pulchripes, H. gigas, P. regalis (Awesome surprise that after having been told twice it was male, has now been molt sexed FEMALE), P. irmina, P. reduncas, and M. robustum all molted on me over the last weekish. Still have my A. geniculata and B. cabocla in premolt, too. :p

    My 4-inch unsexed G. pulchripes finally gave me a molt after nearly 13 months, and it's a girl! :D

    One of my Hapalopus sp. small slings molted today. It looks like it's over 1/3 of an inch. Still puny. Lol

    I also suspect one of my other Hapalopus sp. small slings molted yesterday, but it webbed up it's den so well that it's hard to tell

    So Nimhe's moult could have gone better, a portion of the abdomen (underside and spinnerets) are still partially attached and I'm not sure but I think the tips of the pedipalps didn't make it, they don't look right and there seems to be a bit of blood. Nimhe seems OK though, much bigger and I know can refer to it properly as I have clear tibial hooks and what's left of the pedipalps appear bulbous. Not sure how to feel about having a definite male as I only have the two T's and I don't like knowing the clock is now ticking for my first T. Perhaps I'm a bit touchy from having lost my dog recently.

    My Phlogius "pseudo-stents" moulted a couple of days ago, having only just moulted just over a week prior. Only about a 1" sling, but I was still surprised.

    Moore, OK

    C. versicolor molted and is starting to get the slightest hint of red on the opithosoma, yay. Needs a rehouse badly now.

    OBT also molted, and I actually was able to watch too, which was nice.
