    I got 3 G. pulchripes slings at the end of November. Two molted awhile ago. The third has been in a burrow refusing food for a few weeks now. Just came home to find a freshly molted spider, who had added its molt to the door of the burrow. Super excited, as now my first three slings have successfully molted in my care :)

    Phlogiellus sp. Palawan just molted. Found the exuviae but it's still in its hole.

    Was shocked to wake up today to a fully molted
    Acanthoscurria geniculata
    Even though she ate last night.. she looks to have tripled in size!! But very camera shy so no pic today :-(

    My A. genic moulted yesterday.
    Male. I was worried about a possible bad moult as some of us do, but had been trying to remain optimistic about gender even though ventral sexing suggested otherwise.

    My Neoholothele incei sling has molted for the third time in my care.

    I was just looking into her enclosure (it is a labyrinth of leaves and webbing) to see if I could spot her, and instead I saw an amalgam of legs jutting out at an odd angle near one entrance.

    With this species, I tend to not know that they've molted until I see an exuvia in the water dish :hilarious:

    I'm sure if I hadn't removed it, it would have ended up there!

    Ahh... love to see my slings growing up.

    And to be honest... I've predicted all of those molts like a damn prophet...
    A day before molt I sprinkled their enclosures a bit more and I was like "u're gonna molt in 24h for sure"... and... BANG! next morning there was a fresh, bigger T :)
