I have a adult female metalica that molted last night! I have been watching her very close, and noticed something that let me know a molt was imminent! right around her furrow area there is light colors on the skin through the dark hair and as she got close to molting the light areas on her belly closest to her legs got very dark! Has any one else noticed this with pokies? i know there hard to tell when they will molt!

I have two big gals and I can tell pre-molt is at hand because their abdomen gets almost glossy, the other dead give-a-ways are heavy webbing and not eating.

These gals will throw up a huge web aroung their cork bark and if they don't eat, something is up, they ALWAYS EAT{D
