    Decided to look in on the Ts before bed. Look what the P. machalla is up to. Might try to see if its boy or girl soon.

    Wish it luck.

    Skyler (female Avicularia avicularia) finally molted after fasting for nearly ten months. She was 4.25" before the molt, and it looks like she might be a little larger now.

    Hmm seems it lost a leg in the moult. That's disappointing.

    One of my male E. Sp. red molted earlier today, that makes two MMs and one AF, so in the coming days you all know what is going to happen.

    @Storm1028 That looks to be about the size of my older sling. Is this the first moult where it's shown the cream colouring?

    No, it started showing the cream coloration around 2.25" (last molt). It's currently around 2.5 - 2.75" DLS right now.

    Let us know how it goes! If you weren't down south I'd buy some potential slings off you :cat:

    I will definitely let everybody in on my experience. I already know mated females of this species benefit from a cooling period.

    He looks massive (i compared him mentally to my other male and my female and h seemed to be bigger than both, but that is just mental images)

    A late-ish update. My GBB molted on Christmas Eve (her previous molt was Thanksgiving). The little stinker chewed up her molt so I couldn't confirm sex, but having seen her cling onto her enclosure sides I'm 80% sure she is female. She has increased to nearly 2.5" and her legs are now all black and blueish. I've gone ahead and updated her to a much larger enclosure, because she looked cramped and has been a bit edgy since gaining so much size.

    My GBB molted last night. Pretty sure it's a male looking at the molt.

    My P. fasciata sling molted just about an hour or two ago. Her first molt in my care and she's put on a decent amount of size.

    Slightly out of focus due to taking the photo through plastic, but very soft and squishy. Have been waiting for this one to moult for quite some time. So leggy!

    Tapinauchenius sp. Union Island, hanging out in a bit of an odd position at the moment.

    Updated with a more normal spider position.

    K. brunnipes moulted this morning.

    It went from tiny to tiny. Big size difference.
