I've been feeding my sub-adult avic about every 2-3 days and he generally attacks and eats immediately. Today he let the cricket wander around his web for a few minutes, then got pissed and smacked the cricket a bunch and knocked it out of his web. The cricket was plenty alive (probably felt more alive than ever before after that NDE) so I put him back in with his fellows to fatten up some more.

And thus, I am suspecting a molt. I am still pretty newbish. I have never actually seen this or any T molt. I know the basic drill, but what I wonder is if Avic avics normally molt up high in their web tunnels/hammocks or if he will likely come down to the substrate to molt.

What has been the experience of other Avic avic keepers?

Idk I am hoping to find out very soon, my Avic hasn't ate in 4 weeks tomorrow. Has a very big abdomen so i know she isn't hungry....She is just taking her time to molt i guess...

Yeah my T has a huge abdomen as well. Hopefully it doesn't spend 4 weeks thinking about it. I'm curious to see, dang it!
