Aphonopelma chalcodes molting to first instar
Even knowing they would all molt about the same time, it’s been amazing to see over the course of the day! :) At first instar, their proportions are now tarantula-like and I can see their little fangs and even first bristles!
I'm not sure that pile is such a good idea. You can see they are in the process of molting from EWL to 1i and they need a bit of space to do so and shouldn't be at the bottom of a big pile of slings. As far as I know you are supposed to spread them out a bit.
