Hey Guys,

My T.blondi "sling" finally molted after a month of premolt and it looks much bigger. Here is the molted exuvium, what do you think?





Ps: Pictures were taken with an Iphone 4G, the best I can do with it are these.

Im going to say you have a female there, what size is the moly? The flap looks quite small but going with the fact that there is a flap there is why im going to risk saying its female.

I am very bad with measuring Tarantulas but the body of the spider from spinnerets to the celicerae was around 6-7cm or so long.

Here is the exuvium next to a triple A battery.

It's a female.

Energizer blondi keeps going and going and going and going and going...

This was 3.5 months ago and now she is on her back again. A theraphosa molt is always stressful. Hope she will be OK.

She is gonna get big! :)

Over 5 months has passed from her last molt and she molted again, she is getting big :) :









Tomorrow is exactly a year after I got her. I assume she was 3-4 months old by then so she should be around 15 months old give or take a month. Time flies...

I gently pushed her out of her burrow to take the exoskeleton out and to see her. Man she is big!
