    Itsy Bitsy (Lp) is DEFINITELY going to molt soon. So excited! She/he dug out so much dirt it has a big wall of dirt/cocoa all up the wall of the enclosure, I can barely see it down in its hole, just the tiniest part of its hairy leg is visible and I can't see if it is upside down or not. The pink colors are so pretty right now, I can't wait to take a picture once she/he comes back out.
    This is a before picture, the soil that is mounded on the side of the glass is even higher now.

    My P regalis molted today! And she molted out of nowhere! The last time she ate was just 2 days ago, and she wasted no time to molt!

    My G. Porteri molted today! Sorry for the picture quality, I grabbed the macro lens but i had to take pictures through the plastic because I didn’t want my T to hide.

    Total solar eclipses are more common.

    You mean it has a wine behind.

    Who DIDN’T molt this week? I had quite a few...

    0.1 Pamphobeteus sp. Machala (Fuchsia)
    1.0 Poecilotheria metallica (Eiffel) - this one matured, so he’s available ladies!
    0.0.1 Poecilotheria hanumavilasumica (Shiva) - I sexed this as a male but I now very strongly doubt it. It is a bigger than my mature male pokies
    1.0 Iridopelma zorodes (Monan) - unsexed until this molt...he’s a mature male so he is also available ladies
    1.0 Nhandu coloratovillosus (Meridia)
    0.0.1 Grammostola pulchra (Umbriel) - has a bit of his abdomen stuck on :(
    0.0.1 Aphonopelma chalcodes (Joffrey) - little sling molted
    0.0.1 Lasiodora parahybana (Vegrandis)

  17. Both my Brachypelma albopilosum and Psalmopoeus irminia slings molted! It was one of the only times I've gotten a decent look at my irminia, because it was doing the post-molt stretch and its little toes were showing out of the edge of its web tunnel.

    Also one of my Tapinauchenius slings molted, and lost a leg in the process. Been in the hobby for about 8 months now and this was the first problematic molt in my collection. :( They're very small slings though and other than the one leg everything else went fine, so I am sure it will be regenerated in no time!
