I am very sorry to hear and see this Terri. Your constant tales of this beauty is why I wanted one for myself...
Yeah, I hear you! It's all up to the male's NEW pimp... if this IS a molt, then she's off schedule. Maybe the NEW pimp will send the little guy back when he's done with him!xBurntBytheSunx said:well i hate to hear about this
Every second she spent in the lower chamber, I was there with the flashlight. You could barely see her, but I know her TOO well, I knew the INSTANT I saw her that something was wrong, so I dug her up.Malhavoc's said:How odd terri, I stil am curious how you spotted her in her very eloborate burrow lol.
:? what in the world?? Is this spider lingo that I have not learned yet, or an inside joke? .... must be about a male T or something...MizM said:It's all up to the male's NEW pimp... Maybe the NEW pimp will send the little guy back when he's done with him!
Oh sorry, just trying to lighten up the situation!! I had a male for her, so I was the "pimp"!merjen said::? what in the world?? Is this spider lingo that I have not learned yet, or an inside joke? .... must be about a male T or something...
BTW, how is she doing MizM?
With what food are you feeding her? could it be something about feeding? low moisture?MizM said::8o Well, she just had her third molt in as many years, and it's been just as harrowing and difficult as the first two! Where's our old curmudgeon C.M. to say "I told you so!"
To this day though, I have NEVER seen another T molt quite like this. She only writhed in pain for one week this time. My other Ts do a bit of stretching and flexing during the process, but this girl acts exactly like she's dying of nematode infection! (Unfortunately, I've seen plenty of that! )
Now would be the perfect time to mate her, hmmm, wonder if any sexy blue males will show up at the conference?
