When i woke up this morning i thought that it was a molt hanging in the air, when i reached for it one of the legs moved. Wow holy cow she was molting in this position.

She is doing fine now. Thank god for that, i was a nerve wreck in the whole time she was molting.

Enjoy!!

Pretty cool. I've not had one molt up the side of the enclosure like that. Glad to hear it's doing well.

I am glad she is okay. I love your videos. They are educational for us newer folks and always fun to watch.

It is almost like she uses gravity to help her molt, like mantids do. Awesome video!

I've had a irminia molt similar to that. Molted at a near 90 degree angle against the side of her deli cup. Cool stuff.

These pics was taken in the process and after she finished. Her carapace fell of some minutes after the pics were taken.
