Some may recall a few months ago when I got my very first Mexican Red Knee sling from Kelly Swift. I was agast at how hideous she was LOL - all grubby white/tan. Well, she molted yesterday and is getting her adult colors now, what a difference a change in skin can make!

And she will become even more beautiful with age. Nice to see the kids grow up, isn't it :)

Now that I pull out the record book, I see that I got her on Nov. 19th - for some reason I was thinking I got her in the shipment I received on Oct. 15th - so actually it's only been about 2 months that I have had her, and yes, it's her first molt for me. She went off food on Dec. 24th and went 17 days until she molted! She is about 1.5" now and I actually do suspect that it is a she although I am not completely certain, of course, at this size.
