    My N. chromatus molted. I wasn't expecting it so it startled me to look in its enclosure and see that it was bigger.

    C. cyaneopubescens I picked up last weekend for $75 as unsexed molted and it's a girl. She's around 3.5" now.

    I went to check on my Avicularia avicularia slings (from @cold blood) to see if they looked hungry, and one had molted! (I could see a silk tube with a bunch of new jelly legs.) Its sibling should molt soon, as they normally molt within days of each other.

    It just goes to show that sometimes "unsexed juvenile" really does mean unsexed juvenile.

    Our AC went out recently, so it was around 85 in the house for about a week. As a result, I've got some molts!

    Caught my P.irminia dragging half a moult into its water dish the other day. Little git, it's not a bin! I never see this spider but it loves to dump leftovers and anything else strange in the water dish in the middle of the night. That's how I know she's not dead!

    Downside, she has been super skinny since I've had her (4 moults now) and once again she looks unhealthily thin. I keep trying to feed her up but she's not the most eager eater, despite trying lots of different feeders and times to feed her.
