More than likely. It should darken up a bit, refuse food, web itself in its hide/not be as active. Sounds like you are going to have a nice new looking PZB in anywhere from today-a few weeks. Enjoy!

If its darkened up, refusing food and generally looking lethargic it could well be in premolt I wouldn't worry.

I don't know if it's darkened at all went into what I thinks is premolt soon after I got it.

How old is it? I have an adult PZB that regularly disappears for days on end, pops up, has a roach, disappears again. I couldn't say if it's lethargic, as it doesn't move much anyway. They aren't terribly active creatures by nature. I probably wouldn't worry about it.
