Hey,
What is the quickest time you have seem between molts ?

Unless I have made a error in my records, my Indian Ornamental (Poecilotheria regalis) molted on the 25th and them again on the 28th of this month.

3 days !! is that possible ?

How old is the T? I don't think that's even enough time for it to harden after it's molt.

Definitely a mistake in your records imo.

3 days is no time to re-molt so I suspect it was an old exuvia that you missed it may have thrown out of it's hide.

Did you actively see both molts, i.e. you saw the T on it's back twice within 4 days?

My Poec will hold on to her exuvia and only after what seems like weeks to months will cast it out to where it can be retrieved or she'll incorporate it into her hide/webbing.

Molts ?

Yes, Maybe I just forgot to take out the molt from the 25th, I have had a lot on my mind the last few days.

One month has been our fastest time, but that was with a very small spiderling.
