I just got home from school and checked on my 3" B. smithi. I noticed that her legs were in odd positions and that there was a weird flap of skin hanging off her abdomen, so of course she must be molting, for the first time since I got her! It's unfortunate that I've been at school and don't know how long she's been at it, and I'm wondering why she didn't lay down any webbing before she started to molt. A couple nights ago she moved from her log shelter to her heat pad (she must've claimed the heat pad as her real "shelter"). Can the heat harm her during this crucial time?
