    We have a winner in the “Spring 2018 Sling Molt Contest”. This was a contest to see which of the slings I’ve bought this spring (Y. diversipes, L. difficilis, N. coloratovillosus, P. rufilata, A. merianae, G. pulchra, and 3 L. klugi) would molt first.

    And the winner is my Ybyrapora diversipes! It molted in the early hours of this morning. So hopefully I can rehouse it into one of the arboreal sling enclosures from Jamie’s Tarantulas because I am sick of having to worry about it running out every time I open the pill bottle (it builds its webbing RIGHT at the top). My L. difficilis sling is not too far behind since it was flipped on its back when I left for work this morning. L. klugi #1 and the P. rufilata may not be far behind since they are refusing food.

    Oh and my A. geniculata young juvenile (~2.5 inches) molted yesterday morning. I’m going to need to rehouse it...

    EDIT: L. difficilis sling molted this morning. And L. klugi #1 molted this morning while I was at work. Not sure when the N. coloratovillosus molted but when I checked it on my lunch break there was a molt that it kicked out its burrow. And my A. merianae is on its back...

    When the molts rain, it pours...

    Baby Acanthoscurria geniculata molted while I was at work. Its sibling is due to follow suit any day now.

    My B. vagans juvie moulted last night. Although there's a tiny window into her burrow I can't see anything but a mess of legs and a piece of carapace. Hope she's doing all right. :nailbiting:;)

    P. irminia (1inch sling) moulted last night, a whopping 29 days after it's last moult. Also, the cricket I threw into my Tap. V's enclosure. Luckily for the cricket the Tap is in premoult again.

    Seems like it's been about 4 months since "Ticky" molted but anyway it finally did 2 days ago
    I am just getting around to take a photo. he's still got a little flap of the molt on his back we'll
    see if it falls off soon. I had my doubts he would survive, he seemed weak after molting but
    is perking up a little now. I'd like to take another pic when he stretches out but this is it for now.
    BTW it's a G. Pulchra

    P.irminia molted last week but didn't do her 'house cleaning' till today. AKA pushing the molt out of her hide.

    C. versicolor finally molted. It never got "big" like my other slings so I wasn't sure if it was in premolt but since it refused meals, I kind of figured as much.
    M. balfouri might have molted as well at some point. I haven't seen it in weeks and it had been refusing for quite some time. Today I threw a bit of food in just in case and it was gone by morning.

    Well, my juvie GBB did what I guess you could call molt. I don’t know if it’s technically molting, or exploding, as the little slob was so fat I believe it was at maximum density, looked like eight legs dragging around an orange behind it. It’s a hybrid; spider-pig.

    Pamphobeteus sp. machalla 1.0 molted last night, about 5.5 inches now. Thankfully not mature yet.

    My slings continue to molt. I mentioned that on Monday, four of the slings I’ve acquired this spring (9 in total) molted [L. klugi #1, Y. diversipes, L. difficilis, and N. coloratovillosus]. On Tuesday, L. klugi#2 molted in the morning. On Wednesday, yesterday, the Avicularia merianae molted (I said in my last post that it was on its back, but I think I jumped the gun there). I think L. Klugi#3 and the P. rufilata should molt soon, though #3 did eat the other day. The pulchra, the last of the slings, probably won’t molt anytime soon (not this week anyway). It’s still eating quite heartily.

    Edit 04/19/2018 05:41 pm: And the P. rufilata is molting right now...

    Little G. actaeon just molted. I caught her starting the process a couple hours ago and am happy to see she’s all done now. :)
