Got to see my P. irminia molt last night but couldn't get a great pic due to the webbing, hopefully I can sex the molt.
Here she/he is this morning. IMG_20181003_085740.jpg

Couldn't sleep so made the rounds through the tarantula room. Had four A. avicularia, one P. metallica, two H. gabonensis, and still sorting through a sac of E. murinus looks like most have molted there first time. Luckily 90% of the murinus will be wholesaled so I won't have them that much longer.

Psalmopoeus irminia molted today, really nice growth. Hopefully she'll return to being on display rather than the pet hole she has been the last couple of weeks.

I just found this little dude(tte) looking fresh and an exuvia downstairs in his burrow. :) His previous molt cycle was about 6 months, but this time it was only 7 weeks.

E sp Red / H sp Fire ❤

So, there's hope mine won't need 9 months again??? :astonished:
YES! It actually happens! :astonished:

Just woke up and found my H. sp. fire sling on its back! Only 2 months after its last moult.

It stopped eating about 3 weeks ago, but because its last moult cycle was over 9 months and nearly 5 months of fasting, I didn't expect this at all. :wideyed:
So, maybe I'll have a fully grown cutie before I die...?! YAY! :astonished:

Yay, congrats!! :embarrassed: I can see why you were surprised. :astonished:
There is definitely hope, and cause for celebration, because one of my H sp Fire just molted after 2 months also! :cigar: Our Ts were in sync from across the globe..haha.

[Also, my P. cambridgei sling molted for the first time since I got it!]

That's amazing! :astonished:

After I had to leave it to its own devices this morning, I just came home to a successfully moulted T:

And in contrast to last time (when there was basically no growth at all), it grew quite a bit this time around, at least 1/2" I'd say. :kiss:

Captain Hotdog, the very first T I got 2 years ago (G. rosea), molted last night for the first time in over a year. Dare I hope this T is female? It’s a solid 3 inches now but the previous molt was totally destroyed and it’s not as obvious as with my Costa Rican Tiger Rump, where there was an obvious flap.

Look at that big ole booty!

Just found a molt in the enclosure for my male P. subfusca LL. Hasn't come out yet sadly.

As I was getting my clothes ready for work today I saw my B. albopilosum flip over onto its web mat. Another molting process I can’t get on timelapse!! :mad::rage::punch::banghead::hurting:

Edit: little guy when I got home
