How long do tarantulas usually stop eating before they molt? I have a suntiger that I think may be molting soon because she hasnt eaten for almost 2 weeks now... she is about 2 1/2" right now. Someone please get back to me thnx

virtually impossible to answer, I think. my 1inch b.albopilosum didnt eat 3 weeks before molt, 3inch a.geniculata ate a cricket one day (!) before molt...ask a gipsy fortune teller :)

my suntiger molted

I have a suntiger, that actually molted about a week ago while I was out of town. I left about a day before I think it molted, and I noticed almost no change in it's behavior / coloring prior....
