    My A.geniculata is mid moult right now. It's a quite cramped in there and looks like an awkward position, not sure if i should be worried.

    My male did the same thing with his last molt. It was the only time I've ever been worried about a molt, but it went fine. Theyre pretty good at knowing where they can and cant molt.

    Ephebopus cyanognathus sling moulted. It’s went from tiny to slightly less tiny.

    Two molts I noticed today.

    Large genic female sucking up those fluids from her molt.
    AF chromatus, shes quite large now...maybe even at the 7" mark. Has darkened considerably this molt as well.

    Fingers and toes crossed.

    Look at the difference in size if the carapace.

    My A. merianae just finished moulting. Can't see anything but a fluffy mess of light-brown hairs in that thick web tunnel. :rolleyes: :happy:

    She's out now with no issues and got a pretty nice moult off her too. You're right about the size difference, about time she got an enclosure upgrade i reckon ;)

    My B. Vagans had its first molt today under my care! Very exciting! Had quite the black booty for about a week and woke up to this today

    Damon variegatus decided to molt while I was at work. Looks almost pitch black now, absolutely amazing.

    My C. ritae just flipped for its 4th moult in my care. That T moults like clockwork every month. :D And it developed a nice technique as well. It makes itself a slightly angled hammock, just a tiny bit elevated, so it can smoothly glide onto the ground when coming out of its old exoskeleton. Smart little guy! :smug:

    E. murinus juvenile emerged from its burrow this morning after 3 weeks and is noticeably larger.

    Congrats on a good molt! I definitely agree, you should try to find him a mate.

    I was doing my final check of the gang last night and caught my C. versicolor sling in the act.

    Sorry, but I just have to ask...

    Is she preparing to moult, meaning has she already flipped? Or do you mean she's just not eating any more? Because that stage could take weeks or months depending on the size of your T. ;)

    My Phormictopus sp. "south Hispaniola" just flipped.

    It was missing two legs, so it will be interesting to see how well they regenerate this time.

    Edit: it has two new legs (pale and slightly thinner).
