    C. elegans and N. incei confirmed moulted. How do I know that my N. incei moulted? Well..

    I opened its enclosure, went to water, checked the burrow, and noticed a freaking tip toe sticking out of the blocked entrance. Now, seeing as I just lost a p. irminia to a bad moult my first thought was it was dead because of a bad moult. So I went a poking, collecting more of its legs and such.

    And then I found a clump of legs sitting in a ball of web waiting to be discovered. It must have shoved a bunch of the substrate along with its moult to the front as another means of closing it off. Stupid me.

    New year, new tarantula!

    During New Year's Day, Flash (female Grammostola pulchra) molted and discarded her exuviae in her water dish.

    Now if only Skyler (female Avicularia avicularia) would follow this example. She has been fasting since March 2017. :troll:

    My C. versicolor FINALLY molted after what seemed like forever, and is currently obliterating the molt so I have no chance of sexing it. I'm guessing it's a little over 2" now, it's put on quite a bit of bulk, and it's abdomen is starting to get even pinker than it got last molt.

    My 3rd Hapalopus sp. Small finally caught up to it's sac mates and molted. Still well under 1/2" though

    Well, I spoke too soon. She died. Got through the molt seemingly fine, then died tonight.

    I'm really depressed, she was one of my favorite slings. I loved watching her make intricate tunnel-webs.

    Did she gain much size in that moult, from what you can tell?

    1" T. gigas and 3/4" N. tripepii a few days ago. I actually caught both of them in mid moult and got to see them finish. Very cool.

    My P. metallica sling moulted, but I'm not sure when. I was surprised since the previous moult was December 13. I noticed its abdomen had shrunk, but the leg span didn't seem significantly changed recently and I couldn't see any sign of a discarded exuvia. Well, I found the stash, confirming a moult. I think it was late December, meaning around 2 weeks between moults. o_O

    Also, my Homoeomma sp. Flame/Fire moulted yesterday. I received it on Sept 7th, and it first moulted in my care on November 3. Then December 4. Now Jan 3. It's a moulting machine after the initial bout of laziness.

    Still under 1" DLS though. :shifty:
