    They grow at a decent rate as slings but sliw down at 2-3 inches. When my 3.5" female molted after 2.5 years, she was prettier but barely grew.

    Not necessarily today but I'll do a quick update for last two months while my Ts were in friends care.

    - C. cyaneopubescens - confirmed male now, carapace is starting to look greenish. Amazing fella
    - P. irminia
    - P. cambridgei - not once, but twice. I've heard of their fast growth but I wasn't expecting it to that point.
    - A. seemanni - now whole sling is blue and those stripes on legs are getting even more visible.
    - G. pulchripes
    - G. rosea
    - E. murinus - actually not sure about this one as mine doesn't want to bring excuviae outside for me to examine.. but carapece is definitely more brown than it was before so it either molted or is in a pretty heavy premolt
    - C. marshalli
    - C. lividuds

    Came home from staying overnight at a friends and found my B. albo had freshly molted in its burrow! I can see the moot but it hasn't kicked it out just yet, so I'll let it do its thing, but very exciting - I can't wait for this little guy (or girl!) to grow!

    P. cambridgei male molted behind the dirt curtain and doesn’t appear to be mature yet. Yay! I like having him around.
    Edit: Looks like I was wrong about him not being mature. :p

    Both of my female Poecilotheria subfusca (lowland) molted today. Sorry for no pictures, they are still in the "making a mess" of the enclosure phase.

    I've had a few moults over the past couple weeks:

    T. blondi (female! :woot:)
    M. balfouri (previously suspect female, now suspect male :oops:)
    E. campestratus (very little spider still, but suspect male)
    C. versicolor (suspect male :shifty:)
    P. ornata (suspect male -- this could be where the dimorphism comes through a bit more clearly)

    Came home to see my beautiful O. aureotibialis girl Pyrite is in a new dress. Really starting to put on size. Such a stunner, this gal! :kiss:

    Came home and found my Hapalopus sp. Columbia/large sling molted! It's still the tiniest little sling ever haha. Really cannot wait to see the colors on the booty start to pop, this is one of the most beautiful species IMO!

    I got a surprise moult last night! My P. species machala sling had just eaten four days before moulting so I had no idea it was in premoult! I love surprise moults! They are the best! Now if only my G. pulchra sling would get the memo!! :hilarious:

    Came home from work to two more freshly molted Ts: my B. albo and my A. geniculata! My G. pulchra looks like it's ready to go any day now too! Busy week in the tarantula room!

    My AF A. Seemanni who was in premolt for like half a year finally did the deed last night. I pulled the molt and it's perfect, sucking stomach included. Good job young lady. :shame:
