now this morning when i woke up i looked at his abdomen and the thing turn PITCH BLACK. it's 100% black black black. So a molt will be here soon, does anyone know how long after their whole abdomen changes to pitch black that they molt? will it happen today? or will it be a few days? weeks? Thanks
i think it varies species to species, and also on size of the t. my 8.5-9" T. blondi stayed jet black for a week before molting. My C. lamanai did the same. my curly (4") lasted 4 days last time. ive noticed slings molt within a day or two of changing color most of the time. by the way, that curly has the baldest ass ive ever seen on that species .
Speaking of which, my blondi sling, which has refused food for almost 2 weeks, had the light peach colored butt until this afternoon and now is black, too. I've had it since April and this is its first molt. I can't wait to finally sex it! My last 2 molts turned out to be female. 2 down and 2 to go.
Anyway, not one to let a good joke just die and ready to take advantage of my sling premolting...
