My B.albopilosum named "Curls" moulted today! It is still in the process right now! This is the 2nd moult I have been through! I cant wait to see what it looks like when it all hardens up! When should I feed it again? Thanks, !!!;):):cool::eek:

A T will not feed after a moult until its fangs are completely black again (i.e. completely hardened). This happens anywhere from a couple to several days after a moult.

Once the new skin is hardened, it's not under any threat from prey so I'll typically offer food starting about 4 days after the moult is completed. If it doesn't eat, it will eventually. Once I see it's feeding, then I give it all that it wants, and if the T is big enough, a thawed pinky for instant fatness :)
