They both have molted! One molted today. The other one molted shortly have I got it. It's been out and about and has already taken a few crickets. Here are some pictures of the one that molted shortly after it got here.

It's gorgeous!!! I could not be more please with any of my critters. These are my number one favorites, by far!

Very nice!

I want this species bad. But I guess I need to mature a few more slings before I make the jump.

For some reason I thought this said "both H. maculata have molted" :confused:
These are beauts, whats the average growth rate for these?

The second one that molted, has come out of its little web cave. Funny thing, both of them are refusing to take to their cork burrows. They are acting arboreal. Is this normal behavior from them?

Mine never really burrowed and they didn't really use their hides much. They are about 2 inches atm.
