Hello All,

I have an adult H. Mac female that moulted within the last 4 to 5 days. She lives in a small log and has webbed the crap out of both ends. Haven't actually seen her out in months. I am a little apprehensive to remove the exuvium afraid she will dart out and maybe up my arm. Is it OK to leave the skin? Will she discard it? She never seems to be out in the day time hours.

i think she will kick it out when she feels like it. That's what all my T's do that don't live out in the open! Congrats! :D

My H. maculata shrinks away when I get near to her, or should I say when my long ass tongs get near to her (hint).

How tough/aggressive are these lil guys???

With my arboreals T's, most will kick it out in pieces when they are ready, if your looking to try to sex your T, then you'll have to go and get it.

In my experience this has also been the case.

I have got lucky and the exuv. was in one piece but only rarely.

Good luck.
