We lost 2 males over the weekend!!! We lost our Usambara to a bad post-ultimate molt. I noticed him flipped on his back friday and we decided to leave him be and hoped he would get through it. He never moved from that position and has aparently died on his back without proceding with the molt at all. His legs are sort of relaxed outward. The second male we lost was our C. cyaneopubescens who was devoured by our female finally over the weekend. They had been cohabitating for a while now, but the male never could seem to figure out what to do. We figure the female either got fed up with him or had a succesful mating and decided she didn't need him anymore. Seeing an adult T eat another adult T is just not a pretty site. She is almost obese now, so hopefully they did the deed. What a sad weekend !!!
