First off, three of my slings moulted within a couple hours (B. Smithi, A. Chacoana, P. Murinus)

The question I have is regarding my P. Murinus. One of its rear legs appears to be thinner than the old leg on the exuvium, particularly the metatarsal. Secondly, its pedipalps seem to be shorter and 'nubbier' than the pedipalps on the exuvium...is this normal?

You gotta give them some time. they just crawled out of a smaller space, they need to kinda stretch out and then they will appear larger.
