The first time I ever had a T molt was 1998, My G. rosea, Andelee, 2 months after I had her, on Thanksgiving day. I could barely eat fast enough to get away from the table and hovering nearby, terrified that it might go wrong. I eventually had my whole family and then some in my room, oohing and ahhing at her new colors. It took her almost 8 hours from flipping over to being fully free again. It is still the most memorable molt that I have experienced, even 5 years later, and many molts in between.

other info: took 28 hours to molt, lost left palp, and caused me a great deal of anxiety!

I actually thought it was dead the first time it molted. I had had it over a year and I thought it was an adult male. My brother-in-law poked it with a pencil while it was on it's back and it moved. I'm surprised that thing lasted as long as it did with me.
