Adult female Kochiana brunnipes
It’s been about a week, but my smaller A. metallica molted and has fresh peach toes and lots of fuzz.
My B. vagans moulted today while I was at work. Not entirely surprising as (s)he had the last meal 4 weeks ago, but a nice thing nonetheless.
Now, I just hope (s)he'll bring me the moult, because there's no chance in hell I can get to it.
N. tripepii did last night, ~1" to 1.25". Caught it in the act
Shiny wet slings look gross. Very gross.
B. albopilosum Nicaraguan molted sometime this week about 5" now
Brachypelma baumgarteni "George" molted today. I've been waiting impatiently since he/she became mine for it to molt. It's been fasting since I got it. Doesn't appear to have gained much size. It is still about an inch DLS. But, it is nice to see a little hair on it's butt and I can kinda see what will become the orange on it's legs.
Looking into the container I’m keeping my b. Vagans in and I can see her/his molt. She/he is still in the burrow she/he made but I can see through a little window luckily.
Our Brachypelma albiceps molted. Ive been pretty impressed with the growth rate, comparing it to what I've read about others experiencing. Definitely faster than the boehmei.
Ha, yes, it's exactly the same with my B. vagans! Little window where I can see a nice red butt, but that's about it. I hope she'll emerge soon... I need a clear picture!
Yeah! My little tiny B. Albiceps sling (0.2") finally molted... After 3 months of not eating and moving.
Adult female Lampropelma sp. "Borneo Black"
Damn she is pretty!!!!!
Drop-dead gorgeous and luckily for her, a mature male lives in the next tank over.
Homoeomma sp. Fire/Red
Surprise molt from my juvenile female Nhandu chromatus who ate just a week ago.
Juvenile N. chromatus and juvenile H. villosella both molted yesterday. Neither molts could be used to check gender.
My two Euathlus sp Red slings molted for the fourth time since September. I put the predicted molt date in my calendar and was one day off.
My P. Metallica molted today. Still needs to harden but she/he is starting to show some colors of blue.
Hey everyone! I've had my b. emilia since October. I was told then she was a confirmed female when I bought her at a reptile convention. Today she molted! I wanted to confirm she was a female myself but she decided to destroy the abdomen before I could get to it. I attached a picture of what was left, are you able to tell anything by this? I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right area at all since I'm still a beginner Any help would be appreciated!! I also attached her post-molt. She (hopefully) is pretty beautiful!!
Clip the abdomen off and open it up so that you are seeing the inside of the abdomen (on the ventral side where the book lungs are). This is the area you want to focus on (but on the internal side):
If you are having trouble opening the abdomen, soak it in a cup of water (with a drop of dish soap to break the surface tension) for a few minutes.
Once you have opened the abdomen, and it's dried off a bit (water can cause reflections that obscure the details you want to see), post a picture on our molt sexing gallery.
