    Maybe it'll actually chuck a relatively intact moult out so I can sex it (one can dream).

    P. atrichomatus sling molted last night...haven't been able to get a DLS measurement yet...guessing between 2.5-3 inches. I posted the molt in the sexing gallery, hopefully some more people can weigh in on it.

    My female G. pulchripes molted earlier today. I always feel like a terrible person when they scrunch up to literally as small as they can possibly be, but I wanted that molt

    G. pulchripes molted today, and maybe she is big enough to re-confirm sex but I’ll check next time. She may be close to 3” now.

    A. geniculata has also molted again! June 13 was the last one! She just flipped back over minutes ago so I can’t tell yet how much she grew. I’m betting on around 1.5”

    I show the molts off quickly to the family, and re-caution about ultra-cootie hairs and then flush them.... I’m following the thread on microscopes, so I may get one just for education porpoises.

    Dooooood!

    G. pulchra has almost finished molting just 4 hours after I posted about the other two!

    She was just tooling about when I last looked at her!

    That’s three today!!!

    I have a question. My tarantula Phormictopus cancerides was out this morning and I decided to throw a meal worm in to see if it was hungry as its been about a week or so since I last fed. It didnt jump on it right away and didnt retreat either. I decided to remove the meal worm and as I did so it struck the tongs. I arrived home later to find it on its back in molt! Did I cause any unnecessary stress or harmful stress by making this rookie amateur mistake earlier? I feel horrible I wasnt paying close enough attention to detail. Mine doesnt have a shiny hiny and usually barricades itself so I was surprised to find it like this. Please tell me these guys are hardy animals and everything is fine as Im sitting here concerned! ohhh man Im way too concerned about my animals! lol

    After hiding for many weeks my P. irminia has left me a molt in its water dish. I haven't seen it yet but I'm willing to bet it's time for a rehouse.

    P. metallica surprised me with a molt today! It only molted a month ago so it was very unexpected.
