    I find that I don't need to do anything special to a molt to preserve it. What they shed is mostly made of chitin, which is pretty stable.

    The only time I process molts is to sex them, in which case I cut off the relevant part of the abdomen and leave it to soak in water (with a drop of dish liquid to reduce surface tension so the molt won't just float on the top) for a few minutes so it will spread easier.

    Caribena versicolor molted early this morning. She/he is probably 1.25" spread out or maybe 1.5". The molt was still too small and fragile to spread out. At least for me. Baby T is looking very leggy but that may be because it's fresh out of its skin.

    My Grammostola pulchripes sling finally molted. Little dude's been tucked away in his burrow for a month.

    this happened yesterday but i was feeding my 4 stone centipedes (dont know there scientific names) when i got to one i noticed it seemed to be eating an old dead cricket so i pulled away the cricket only to notice it was actually the tale of a molt and upon closer inspection the pede was slightly grayish blue. i figured i already had enough to eat because it ate its molt and the molt seemed to be fairly recent so i decided against feeding it, i wish i had some pics but i couldn't get any good pics

    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 :)

    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.
