I'm just hoping its contagious. My curly molted but I REALLY want my red phase rosie to molt out so I see her nice and fresh. She is so worn and faded right now.

Hey Jeff, I heard ya on that one. This week alone I had my juvie B.vagans and my 3 vagans slings, 2-subfuscas, my P.miranda, my juvie regalis, my Yucatan rustrump, one A.avic, H.gigas, G.pulchra, and I think that was it so far for this week. It's pretty cool. Wait I did forget one other. It was one of my B. smithi.

PG-

With that bunker of spiders, I'd think you'd have molting going on year 'round! :D
