SHE MOLTED! She was done at 5:40 pm today. She's tired, of course, but it was a gloriously good molt.
I tried to get the molt untwisted, but that was a no-go.
She came out skinny. Gonna fatten her up.

Congrats on a successful molt! The little "Grape" pulchripes- .5 sling, I was so sure would molt any time, huge shiny abdomen.... for several weeks. Sling after sling of different species molted. Even the second G. pulchripes molted, it didn't really look pre molt- not fat not dark, just burrowed and refused to eat. It better molt into 2 inches and with gold knees after tricking me like this.... :shifty:

edit: and yes, it is surprising how small the abdomen is post-molt. Makes sense why, but what a visual difference..

Right now she's grooming herself.

I am very thrilled. She came out of that molt intact.

Warm soapy water will make the moult pliable if you want to save it.

Next week, love?!?!? Blasphemy! I wanna see those freshly molted colors :D:kiss:
My Dear I only have this phone to take pictures. I would have to peel off the deli lid, then put her bright light. That would stress her.
For now we have to love her from afar. o_O;)
