Brachypelma boehmei, after molt
Girl or boy? What do you think?
@ProudSmithiOwner The molt is often salvageable. The abdomen is usually wadded up but can be unfolded.
  1. Cut the abdomen off of the rest of the molt
  2. Cut off the bottom of the abdomen below the second pair of book lungs. (Otherwise, it has a tendency to fold in on itself.)
  3. Prepare a dish of water with a drop of dish soap to reduce surface tension. (Otherwise, the light molt has a tendency to float on top.)
  4. Place the molt in the dish. Let it soak for up to five minutes (until it becomes pliable).
