congrats. I get nervous when mine start to molt, I have read a ton of horror stories{stuck in molts} so I am always happy when a molt goes good for someone

Great pics dude! I love the thrill of a successful molt. I had my first sling molts a few months ago. My B. smithi was so dramatic in building up to the molt and knowing that it was coming. With my versi though I just came back from school to find it chilling with its exo. It was such a surprise.

If im not mistaken they were 3rd instar when Tarantulahomes.com started selling them. I remember reading on thier site they waited to start selling them so they would be more hardy for shipping. It was them or tarantulacages.com that said this in there ad for there Theraphosa.
