Did the morning rounds today to discover a PERFECT exuvium hanging off a vertical climb. I'm so excited! I've only had one arachnid molt in my care before, so I'm a little jealous of FunnyLori's tarantulas always molting and my collection just sitting there. But no more! :D

What I recovered:


The brand-new beastie!


Here's how big she was before (now I need to get a new reference photo):


Edit -- after looking at the original photo, has she been in premolt since January (when it was taken)? :?

Thanks everyone! Yeah, that post-molt coloration is awesome! I wish she'd stay that color. :D

Well, I guess she didn't grow much. Here's a comparison shot with her molt (she's on the left).



Sorry 'bout the blur, but my camera decides to hate me every now and then.
