I was just wondering if anyone could tell me a little info about the molting behavior of Old World spiders here. I have at least three spiders who are to my experience with the behaviors of pre-molt New World spiders, looking like they are winding up for a molting. Luci, my Cobalt, has even been getting a swollen, hairless rump as well. I know that it is said that Old Worlders tend to molt late Summer/Early Fall while New Worlders tend to do the major bulk of their molting Spring/Early Summer. How much of this is true and just what are your experiences with your Old World spiders? I'd really like to hear from you all about this.
