IMG_1265.JPG IMG_1263.JPG All i want to know is if she is going to molt or this is something else, if she is going to molt, it will be the first in my care as she is my very first T. Sorry about the picture quality too.

Has she stopped eating?
With this species, not eating is pretty much a big sign of being in premolt.
Her abdomen looks pretty plump as well, which could be a sign of premolt as well. But it could also mean she is just full and isn't hungry anymore. If she is indeed in pre-molt, don't feed her live food, keep the waterdish full, and leave her alone.

Are you keeping her on dry substrate? It looks a little damp, but that could also be just the picture. How big is it?
Two weeks without food are easy for her, like i said, she looks nice and plump.

cant wait for mine to get that green carapace
It has grown like a weed until two moults ago. Now seems to be living life nice and slow aha.

The colour change is what makes this species extremely interesting. Striking colourations from slings to adults.

You girl looks fantastic :)

At that size i also noticed longer pre-molt periods.
With that abdomen, she can easily go three or four weeks without food. Just make sure she has acces to water.
And if she molts, make sure not to feed her until her fangs are black again :)
