    My very first Avic sling I got earlier this month, an A. Avic just molted! She doesn't look much bigger but I trust she is. Her molt is buried in her web!

    I'm expecting several new slings Wednesday and can't wait! I'm new to the hobby, got into it to get over my fear of Ts! Now they take up a whole shelf on my reptile shelving!

    My A. avic molted some time today into a mature male. Ironic that the only spider in my collection that will eat the mature male roaches has become a mature male himself.
    Unfortunately, I don't think he will get the chance to do his thing unless I can give him to a vendor at my local expo.

    Just realized how fat it is post-moult, haha.

    And a bonus photo taken a while back of my K. brunnipes enjoying a cricket as its first post-moult meal:

    Got a few of my slings down for a feeding today and realized one of them (my P. murinus) has molted! Just ate a week ago and it has been only 15 days past it’s previous molt cycle. Wasn’t expecting that one lol

    I just found this little dude(tte) looking fresh and an exuvia downstairs in his burrow. :) His previous molt cycle was about 6 months, but this time it was only 7 weeks.

    Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens. Her molt measures exactly 5 inches and her previous two molts were 4.5 inches and 4 inches respectively so I'm guessing she sits at 5.5 inches leg span right now. I used to think vibrant colored tarantulas were overrated until I had this girl.

    My Pamphobeteus so mascara sub adult male moulted tonight. So both parts of my future breeding project are both going strong.

    Bingo my Acanthoscurria geniculata molted sometime last night. Too bad it went back to it's hide and blocked it off.
