1.5" Female Davus pentaloris [molt sexing]
Molt hack: With such a tiny, flimsy abdomen, I found it was easier to stretch it out in the water rather than removing it and then trying to spread it out. (When you remove it, it folds in on itself.)

Bonus points: The water acts as a sort of makeshift diffuser for backlighting the molt.
