I worry about the larger tarantulas when molting. So far they have all molted fast and with no problems. My big girl t stirmi was down for two weeks after molting. I won't lie, she made me nervous as heck when she was in premolt.

Well every other time I catch it after the hard part when there just waiting to harden up this is the first time I seen it from flipping over to the end and IV had this guy about a year so I'm a little attached to him

Oh it usually is lol. The good news is that T's have been doing thing for a loooooooooonnggg time and for the most part they have it figured out. I currently have 2 slings that I expect to be molting soon and i just hope i come home from work and it's all done with again.
The first molt I delt with was my GBB. I woke up and noticed it was upside down and went to work. I was busy enough that day to not have a chance to worry about it.that is until i was driving home lol, as soon as i got home i rushed to see if everything went well and it did.
