My ~.5" Avic avic molted last night. Made a web mat. She never turned over, started molting and fell out of the mat onto the substrate.

She did her stretching on the substrate, and after an hour or two, climbed back up onto her mat. Seems fine, she's probably an inch now.

Makes me wonder, are they really as fragile as all that during a molt?

Edit: 1.5" T. plumipes just molted. Too hidden to see how big it is now, but probably 2".

My L violaceopes sling is molting right now but looks like a wet molt. I lost a A.versi sling to a wet molt two days ago :( . This is not normal...

just a good day! unless were not seeing the big picture here and T's shed more in the spring / summer then another time. Also to add to this wild hypothesis my A. Versicolor is going into molt lol.

Also, the last two molts I had were very bad.... and I was very upset. they are a little unrelated but they were scorps. had one molt and die, then another go to molt and she stabbed herself and died, so I've just been on edge lately.

The bigger of my two versi slings moulted while we were away this weekend. Funny, since I was expecting the little one to go first -- she's gone very dark and has been webbing madly for the past couple of weeks. Oh well! Little Merlin looks to be about 2" now. Growing up!

:D My little C. ritae just molted -- I checked on her about 5 today when I was feeding my other Ts and she was just sitting there, looking all innocent. Checked on her 10 minutes ago and ta-DAAHH! A teensy molt had appeared that she was sitting on. I gently made her move so I could grab the molt. It's SO SMALL!!!! (Wish I had a microscope!) She does look bigger but it's definitely not a measurable change. >Whew< Now she'll eat again. Yay! {D
