Who molted today?

    Psalmopoeus pulcher molted today. She had a very round black butt and I knew she was gonna pop at some point but the day I decide to see if maaaaybe it's just the natural colour of the butt, nope, didn't even realise I popped a dead cricket right next to where she was molting. Took it out when she didn't take it after a while but didn't realise she had been molting until much later when I saw her white legs through the plastic.

    While not today, a few days ago my Ephebopus cyanognathus molted, and my tiny Pterinopelma sazimai sling molted even further back though I'm not sure when, it may even have been during my mini-move in the car. They're now slightly blue and not peach like all my other smaller slings.

    My little B. auratum sling FINALLY molted. It was about 1/2", likely 3/4" now. Only 228 days from the previous molt and 200 days with no food. :dead:

    Things were busy while I was away;

    H. maculata sling
    Chilobrachys sp. Kaeng Krachan (2/2)
    Cyriopagopus albostriatus
    Tapinauchenius cupreus
    Poecilotheria formosa sling
    Pterinochilus sp. Arusha sling
    Pterinochilus lugardi sling (1/2)
    Psalmopoeus cambridgei (looking male)
    Ornithoctonus aureotibialis (confirmed female)

    And last but certainly not least, my N. incei male, who is now mature! Gonna fatten him up and do some info digging, and then hopefully I'll get to pair him to my MF GCF :D

    My T. stirmi motled today, a bit unexpectedly she ate 1 week ago, finally I got a female after raising two stirmi males from sling to adulthood.
    Got this girl in July 2018 (first pic), her first molt was 6 cm (just a bit over 2 inches) DLS, today's molt is 13 cm DLS so she's probably around 15 cm(around 6 inches)

    Just woke up to a freshly moulted B. schroederi sling. :smug:

    Now, it would be nice, if the remaining eight Ts currently in heavy premoult (almost half of my collection) caught up with it. :kiss:

    t.blondi had a successful moult. It's not left it's cave yet, but it looks to have gained quite a bit of leg span, but still looks like a gangly sling. Looking forward to the juvenile moult.

    My p.sazimai also moulted a few weeks back. It's filled it's hole in an now seems to want to be pet rock out in the open.

    I'm jealous! :meh: I'm already waiting 8 months for my sling to moult (again!), but not even a sign of premoult so far. :rolleyes:

    Caribena versicolor unsexed sling

    I'll be interested to see what slings grow at a more glacial pace: the H. chilensis, the B. albiceps, or the A. moderatum.

    My money is on the A. moderatum.

    Saw my Lasiodora parahybana sling flip over to moult on Friday, but I was slightly worried as it flipped back over. I went away for the weekend and came back to a freshly moulted sling.

    Hell must be freezing over, because guess who just molted? :woot:


    Saw my G. pulchra freshly molted just before leaving for work. Was behaving a little odd though, so I'll be keeping an eye on it.

    The second of my two latest additions - A. purpurea - moulted last night. It easily doubled in size, she (wishful thinking) is now at least 1". :smug:

    B. schroederi one day after its moult on Wednesday: 20190606_the day after.jpg

    I'm always happy when they finished their first moult in my care successfully. :smuggrin:
