My 3" G. Rosea is starting to move substrate around. He/she is building a dam on one side of the hide. I do notice a large dark spot on the underside of the abdomen. He/she is still grabbing anything that come in the way, eating very well. Is Rosea ready to molt? Never molted while I've own him/her.

That dark patch could be the urticating (itchy) hairs. If he's still eating then i wouldn't of thought a moult was soon, but some have been known to eat 2 days b4 moulting! Sounds like he's just redecorating :)
But if he does moult then good luck :D

I'm considering buying a couple of tool belts for my two Rosies. With all the building they do it might even be worth my while to sign them up to a trades union. Come to think of it, the little buggers could make themselves useful and re-decorate my bathroom :) Seriously though, my oldest Rosie hasn't moulted in three years now and is constantly building walls. Leave 'em to it, they love it.
