Almost 2weeks ago I posted a thread making sure if my T is fine coz she dug underground and covered herself up.

Earlier, I checked up on her and saw this:




So I got my camera and started taking these pictures...

Stretching out of her old clothes:




Out of it!





All curled up after the molt...



Hopefully she digs out of her underground lair soon so I can measure her and feed her {D

Very cool, glad it molted at a time you were able to observe it. The pictures are very nice as well, since I haven't had the pleasure of seeing the process in such cramped quarters. Now to see how long it takes for it to emerge, so please keep the thread updated for us! :D Having the full process from burrowing to molt to feeding will be a helpful thread to link for others in the same boat. :) (wait a week to feed it/ if you are able to see its fangs they should be black/ study its behavior and learn what its 'hunting pose' is and feed when you see it)
