Hi all, i watched my 1 inch g.pulchra sling molt today, it was the coolest thing i've ever seen, seems how i've slept through all my other tarantula's molts. It grew from 1-1.5 inches or so. Anyways, when can i feed it again? i know you can feed spiderlings sooner than adults after they molt, but when is a good time to try? It molted around supper time today, and it took oly 45 min or so. I will for sure start off with dead prey incase its a little fragile still. Any help/tips appreciated!!

As soon as it seems more sturdy on its feet and the fangs have darkened then it may want food again.

I usually wait 3-5 days after a molt to feed again, it depends on how the spider is looking and acting.

Ok thanks guys, Ill give it a few days and make sure its looking active with black fangs, then offer it dead prey.
