Brachypelma emilia sling molted this morning, and appears to be male. My juv. male G. pulchra did the same yesterday, but unlike the little guy below, he stayed in his hide during and after the procedure, so no picture was taken yet.

Although I wouldn't call it a sling it's beautiful!!! ♥

My B. emilia sling moulted as well on Monday. ;) And quite unexpected at that. Its last moult cycle was 262 days, this one only 66 days... :rolleyes:
And when I got the moult out to give it another try at sexing, I had to accept the fact (s)he totally destroyed the important parts. :mad:
And now it's hiding as if it knows it did something wrong. :rofl:

I agree, I was about to label him as juvie, but the fact he is still on the smaller side (3,5 cm body lenght) confused me a bit.

I had similar experience with my pulchra, 163 days passed between his two previous molt, and now it was only 79.

Brachypelma emilia and Avicularia sp.Kwitara river both moulted. Looks like my Grammostola pulchra is getting ready to moult soon too. Just need my M balfouri to hurry up now.

My 0.5in Aphonopelma mooreae molted. This was only 46 days from its last molt which seems fast. It ate for about two weeks post molt before sealing itself off for a month until this molt. Hasn't stretched out yet but doesn't seem appreciably bigger.

Recently I've had a few moult. Adult female Ceratogyrus meridionalis, subadult male Acanthoscurria geniculata, juvenile male Caribena versicolor, male spiderling Eupalaestrus campestratus, juvenile male Monocentropus balfouri.

Unfortunately my Ornithoctoninae sp. Hati Hati got stuck very early on in an attempt and passed.

My Pamphoboetus sp machala sling molted yesterday. Elmeri is the first T I've had molt so it was special and of course s/he had to make it weird. Elmeri molted on her side so that her legs were attached to the water bottle cap. It happened super fast too. I left to go to the store and 30mins later Elmeri was done.

S/he's absolutely stunning. IMG_20200620_152118.jpg

My female A chalcodes finally molted yesterday afternoon after being in premolt for a number of months. Her last molt was July of 2019.

In addition to the other recent moults, my Idiothele mira moulted fairly recently (April 1), but only recently kicked the exuvia out of the burrow.

Turns out she's a juvenile female!

P Murinus molted again but this got me thinking; in the 4 1/2 months I've owned it at under 3/4" legspan, it has molted 4 times and is well over 2 1/2" legspan.

1 molt per month isn't excessive even as a sling?
