First Moult in Three Years

My senior Avicularia avicularia M1 moulted today - three years almost to the day of the last one. She is more than 10 years old and I thought I was going to lose her this winter. She is the girl who started my love of arboreals and I'm glad she is going to stick around a while longer. ♥

      A beautiful old lady. A. avic M1 are stunning and it drives me nuts how often they get looked over or passed up.

      I love it when old spiders surprise you with a molt.

      For the last year she has been refusing food a lot. Not for extended periods, but she will accept food maybe one in three times that I offer it to her. That is something that I have found that my seniors do when they are not much longer for this world. I am really shocked at this moult and I hope she recovers well.

      @VanessaS My first Avic fasted for 13 months as a senior, and I was sure I was going to lose her, but then she molted two more times before getting stuck in a third and final molt.

      @VanessaS It is just sad to see someone you care to pass away, I hope she will live long and healthy
