    I just wanted to share this awesome and interesting molt with everyone! My 3" G. pulchripes molted today, and I was extremely surprised, as she ate just last week! What makes this even more awesome, she molted only 2 months ago (September 7th, to be exact) and since then, she hasn't refused food at all, she's eaten 15 crickets! (I was told on this forum it is perfectly fine to feed that much, but just to expect a long fast) I was expecting a long pre-molt fast, but not even a week. I hope you guys have luck like this with your Ts!

    Sounds like some of my Pamphos, they tend to eat right up until they molt. But be ready, G. pulchripes tend to slow down in growth once they hit a certain size, enjoy the time when they molt frequently because before you know it, it'll be gone ;)

    Gorgeous T nonetheless! Makes me miss my pair
