    Gorgeous!! That pic made me extra glad I got a freebie B. emilia sling with my last order. It's currently in premolt but it's gonna be a while before it's anything like yours- it's a little barely 1/2" sling. :)

    Yeah, it wasn’t a species originally on my wish list, but the store I was in had her as a confirmed female for £35, so I couldn’t resist. Glad I got her.

    My Pterinochilus murinus moulted. Haven’t seen her come out of her hide yet.

    Adult females P.cambridgei and P.metallica both did their yearly molts sometime in the past 3 days. P.cam looks to be pushing 7" while P.met still looks around 6.5", but her carapace got noticeably bigger.

    Just moulted P.murinus 'Ella' , the last time exactly one month ago doubled his size (from 2.5cm to 5cm), this time didn´t see yet but looking through the web looks amazing. This noon I said to my wife: I think 'Ella' is about to moult because is in the ground, but nah is impossible not a month has passed yet, and half an hour ago I went to check the B. hamorii 'Roja' that molted this friday and saw 'Ella' upside down :woot: Now is walking over the moult ( I don't know how to get it out of the enclosure to preserve it with the previous one...)
    P.D There are relationship with the time between molts and the sex?

    My adult female A. avic just went exactly three hundred and sixty four days since her last molt in my care to molt again. She’s gotten over being well behaved after I rescued her to letting her true troll colors shine through. :shifty:

    It actually happened! I can't believe it! :wideyed: My 1" Homoeomma sp. fire sling just moulted! After nine months in my care and 141 days of fasting... finally! :woot:

    20180806_finally.jpg

    It actually surprised me. I mean it looked a bit darker when I came back home from vacation yesterday, but I guess, I just got used to its fat booty and not-eating attitude. So, when I just checked the enclosures and saw my little beauty, it left me speechless... and a tiny bit upset, because it gave me no indication whatsoever it was gonna moult. :shifty:
    Aaaaanyway.... for now, I'm just happy it did finally moult and looks well and healthy! :kiss:

    One thing Avic owners know is that Avics do what they want.

    And the worst part is that I can't even really be mad because she's such a finicky eater and they get so scraggly and pathetic looking during premolt that I'm just happy she's not dead.
