The miracle did happen... it moulted! Unfortunately, it stashed its moult at the far end of its burrow, so, I still don't have a clue if it's a girl or a boy. Maybe it'll bring it out, but I don't get my hopes up. And if it does bring it out, it's probably completely destroyed... like the last time.
@WolfSoon Phew, I know the feeling... it took mine almost 10 months (291 days to be precise) to moult again. Curiously, its last moult cycle was only 2 months, but the one before that was at least 9 months.
@Thekla Ooh, maybe if I whisper to mine that yours just completed a molt after 10 months, he/she will get in the spirit too. Mine have erratic molt cycles too, which adds some excitement at least! I agree, the long waits are worth it for these cuties.
If you can’t get an intact molt, @VanessaS let me know that they’re pretty easy to sex ventrally at small sizes. I’ve just been too lazy to try it with my second one.
