    Been a busy week, last seven days have seen five molts.
    1/2" Lasiodora difficilis
    2" Avicularia avicularia (confirmed male on this molt)
    2 1/2" Avicularia avicularia who once again destroyed the molt
    1 1/2" Ephebopus murinus
    4" Aphonopelma seemanni bcf (female)

    Currently have four others in heavy premolts so waiting on that still

    The pics where troubling me. Why's she so leggy? Opened her enclosure. Absolutely bloody gutted. Time to contact the seller me thinks.

    Genicula (my juvenile male Acanthoscurria geniculata), who had been in pre-molt since May 19, molted last night. He looks a lot better (and more comfortable).

    Well, at least it's a species that is in high demand, and he looks good and healthy.

    I'm absolutely gutted as "she" arrived a little tatty. Moulted looked better but still. This moult was going to show "her" off in perfect condition. Then a stinking leggy MM pops out.

    Yeah, that's disappointing, and the seller should probably give you a partial refund if it was sold as a confirmed female.

    Still, sometimes you have to [insert cliché about making the best of a bad situation].

    I'm more of a my glass is half empty sort. Although I have just found a tarantula that will be a wonderful "replacement" for my resentment and bitterness.

    Poecilotheria subfusca Highland. Maybe 6" or so now. Going to look awesome once she comes out for pictures/food.

    I've been waiting for this moult since I got my B. hamorii almost 9 months ago. :D
    Her last meal was 5 months ago.
