    Within a couple of days, five tarantulas molted including three
    Cyriocosmus elegans, then one of eqch Chilobrachys fimbriatus, and
    Hysterocrates laticeps.

    Below are the Chilobrachys fimbriatus, and Hysterocrates laticeps.

    Honestly, to me, rehousing a tarantula is much more exciting than feeding a tarantula somehow. How a tarantula will venture through and explore here and here, and hunt down it’s prey in a new enclosure just makes me smile.

    Thus, here comes a new enclosure for
    Pamphobeteus ultramarinus. This will be pretty much semi final enclosure for it.

    Just right before I go to sleep, I caught two of my tarantulas molting, and I felt so lucky.

    One was Acanthoscurria geniculata, and the other one was Orphnaecus philippinus. In the morning, I found both of them successfully molted.

    From time to time, Chilobrachys Sp. Electric Blue is out and about, but I could not really take a decent shot or two of it. Yesterday though, it was pretty relaxing and so chill, and didn’t mind me taking shots at all. However, after taking a second shot, it went right back into it’s burrow.

    Ephebopus murinus is not in pre molt, but it will be soon. Thus I wanted it to molt in much more spacious environment, and so it was rehoused.

    Some awesome species you've got even just on this last page, the fimbriatus and ultramarinus are two that I'm a fan of and still yet to get.

    I like Chilobrachys fimbriatus a lot. A tarantula that eats well, webs well, what can I ask for more? :angelic:

    Post molt feeding for my Chilobrachys fimbriatus. I am just happy that I now get to feed it yet again until next molt cycle. Yay!

    To accommodate fast growing Acanthoscurria geniculata sling, I wend ahead and did a bit early rehouse for it. It looks like that’s too spacious for a small sling, but just wait for it.

    Surprise, surprise. I got home and found two of my tarantulas molted, and both Grammostola pulchripes, and Avicularia purpurea molted well.

    Oh no, my Caribena versicolor was stuck while molting, and I did found a bit late, hopefully not too late. I eventually removed all the stuck parts, which were two pedipalps, and one leg, but it doesn’t look so good at all. It seems just too weak to make it.
