He/She has been in heavy pre-molt the past few days.




I come home from work this morning to this, adult coloring is starting to come in! He/She got quite a bit bigger! {D

I viewed earlier, but I don't like replying on my phone. Did you grab the molt to try and sex it? I still enjoy my vagans even though the don't seem to be as popular now.

I grabbed the molt this afternoon. Gave he/she some time to relax a bit.

The molt is way too small to sex, so maybe another molt or two. The B.vagans is one of my fav. of the Brachypelma genus. Black with a red haired rump ;)

Well we can always hope its a female :)
I don't have much experience with the genus. IDK if the growth rate in this little one can show male vs female.

Who knows... I just can't wait until "it" has hardened up and stretches out.

What do you mean by "heavy pre-molt". I've read a bit about moulting but just want to clarify what the signs are, can you describe the symptoms?................... so I don't miss the signs and keep feeding when the time comes?!

usually the spider will stop eating. Then you'll start noticing the abdomen darkening, and the spider may become slow and lethargic.
