M. balfouri finished molting.
@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
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.
B. boehmei molted two days ago. Legs are lookin nice and pink and its finally started putting on 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.
P. tigrinawesseli sling
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.
Subadult male X. immanis molted. Was expecting him to have matured but didnt. Is going to be a monster MM
D. pentaloris sling molted yesterday
K. brunnipes moulted this morning.
It went from tiny to tiny. Big size difference.
I know the struggle... they are cute though. Did it get the shiny gold patch on its abdomen this time around?
My A.geniculata moulted yesterday evening but I didn’t post yesterday as I didn’t want to jinx it! I was lucky enough to arrived halfway through him pushing his legs out.
Anyway, I’ve only owned Ts since the beginning of December and this is my first moult so I’m super happy! I can’t wait to see my genic (hopefully) become the eating machine! (He’s not really fed since I owned him)
Oh, and not only my A.avicularia has now sealed itself in its web tube so I think that’s due but my B.albopilosum is heavily in pre-moult too.
This is all getting a bit addictive!
It actually got that the last moult (which I never saw or had evidence for until it was like oh, youre a bit bigger than a pinhead). This time those gorgeous pink legs are really evident and the entire body is much darker, and I think it's closer to 1/4" of an inch now. Not quite, but close.
Mine is still a bit smaller, probably an instar or two behind. Neat little species so far.
Hapalopus sp.large sling molted. Here's last molt (bottom)vs. this molt
AF Pterinochilus murinus BCF Tete
AF Ornithoctonus aureotibialis
AM Avicularia braunshauseni
