    N. tripepii #2 molted today, went from 5/8 inch to 1 inch. I rehoused it from a vial into a Hobby Lobby matchbox car display case. (Yay! Vials are not my favorite thing to deal with.)

    Minerva, my female L. klugi, molted yesterday, and went from 2 and 5/8 inches to 3 inches. You can just start to see the red abdomen coming through a bit more now. :) Will post another round of photos of the whole bunch in a couple of weeks.

    Hapalopus sp. large sling molted yesterday. Third time since i had it. Growing like a weed. One of my favorites slings. The webbing it does is so neat to look at.

    Also discovered the discarded molt of my C. fimbriatus. I'm guessing she molted within the last week.

    I've had three more moult since the the Homoeomma sp. Fire did on the 9th:

    2x M. balfouri slings (not sac mates) (one yesterday, one today).
    1x H. pulchripes (I think around the 10th)

    I have a P. metallica that is all webbed in and was looking ready to pop the last time I saw it 5-6 days ago. I'm hoping for the next couple days.

    Bonus chubby K. brunnipes, one meal since the last moult:

    2” G. actaeon molted today, one month after I brought him/her home! She ate a cricket just a few days ago, so I actually had no idea a molt was so close.

    D. diamantinensis has been fat, shiny, and unusually reclusive so I suspect premolt. ;)

    5/8 inch B. auratum molted this afternoon, and is now ~3/4 inch.

    5/8 inch B. albo #4 molted this evening, and is now ~3/4 inch.

    7/8 inch P. atrichomatus molted this evening, and is still curled up on its back. Probably over an inch, though.

    So I haven’t seen my wife’s OBT in a couple weeks due to pre molt. I was doing my usual water routine for the slings and adding some on their substrate and guess who came out before I went to bed??


    You’re darn tooten! My wife’s OBT! Freshly molted and got some sweet orange coloring on his/her butt! Pic is a little fuzzy cause phone camera was stupid and wouldn’t focus that great. Anyways you all can admire this butt with me

    Also before molt, she just had dark brown coloring, after the orange is starting to come in.

    My P. muticus sling finally molted yesterday. I was waiting for it to do that for about 3 months. It was .75" before and now it's .75" but slightly fuzzier.

    Still not my slowest grower. Got a A. chalcodes sling that's .5" and is going on SIX MONTHS in premolt. :mad:

    5/8 inch B. emilia #2 molted, and is now ~3/4 inch.

    7/8 inch P. auratus molted, and is now 1 and 1/8 inches. It molted in its tube hide, and got stuck with only its head out. I found it before the molt had completely hardened, and with some misting and careful tweezer work, I was able to work the molt off of the abdomen and legs. Whew. Glad I saw that when I did!

    8 molts in 5 days...busy week for my crew!

    Well in the last week I've had 4 molts, firstly my O. schioedtei (no chance of a picture) C. dyscolus, H.laticeps, A. geniculata. My other T's all look like they're going into pre-molt, must be that time again, my A. geniculata gained an inch DLS easily. Sorry there are no pictures, I like to leave them in peace especially after such an exhausting process.
