Heh, I was feeding and monitoring the humidity yesterday night, and I saw them all jumping to the crickets...Except one.
She will catch it, I thought.

I just went to check on them and that one JUST molted! (TB1)
She has gain quite a lot of size, probably double the leg span.

Will take some pictures when I get back from work ;)

Haha, no fighting here so no problem ;)

the other slings ate yesterday, they should be molting any day.

They really grow quite a lot, the body lenght is about the same size as the former leg span :eek:.

It should be ready to eat in 4-5 days

Yeah, easily almost 3 in leg span. After stretching out, it might well be 3.
OMG!! how big was your sling when you got it? Mine was & still is about 1.5"+.

Yeah,, all the same size, about 1.5"
These are going to be some big T's I think...that just seems like a lot of growth for one molt. And I know how you measure so I know it's accurate.

Im keeping them quite warm and really humid.
87-88F constant temps, and about 90% humidity.

Soft light is on till 10pm aprox.

Im quite sure with those temps we will get similar results (Rob)

For those who asked about housing, Basically a 6"by 6" enclosure, with 3" inches of susbstrate just in case they want to build a burrow, water cup, and LOTS of ventilation.

I am using about the same enclosure, 8" X 8" and 86-88 degress with same humidity! Mine is webbing now!! I say it is a molting matt!!

Congrats Fran! My girl (hopefully) has finally stopped eating..

She finally ate a mealworm & hasnt stopped eating.. Until yesterday..
I have been feeding it 1-2 small crickets a day..

She is in a 7"x4" with 2-2.5" of substrate.. Has a corkbark hide..

Temps are at 88F constant.. It actually dropped to 81F last night.. It got a wee bit chilly here.. :rolleyes:
Substrate is kept moist.. I dont have an accurate way to measure the humidity.. I am going to go get something to test it here soon though..

I am hoping (since she finally quit eating) she will follow with a molt soon.. :D

*Note* I say "she" loosely...

Oh! Who can confirm the sex via dinky sized molt? LoL!
