My LP molted 12 days ago and is not interested in eating at all. It usually pounces on anything that moves 5-7 days after a molt. It is about 6 inches now. Almost 99% sure it is a male. Should I be concerned?:confused:

From my experience, as T's get older they tend to not only take longer to recover after a molt, but spread prey items out longer throughout the next molt cycle. This Is just an observation of my limited collection so don't take it to the bank but I would say just give him another week or so and offer food then. Hope that helps.

It can vary from 5 days up to a month or two. Depends on the spider size, sex and species,
