This little guy is molting as I type this. Looks to have gained some size! PXL_20210303_151623271.jpg PXL_20210303_155911791.jpg

My C. lividus seems to have molted overnight. I'm glad her burrow is all the way to the bottom where I can see her or I would have never know.

Something else always worth checking on any moult (apart from the usual sex organs) is that the sucking stomach has also successfully been replaced.

Here is what to look for (circled). There can be digestion problems and your spider unable to feed properly in certain circumstances so best not to overlook this vital part of the moulting process. 👍

One of my Aphonopelma Sp. Diamondback slings. Top of the abdomen got stuck and was dragging it's old molt around for about a day. Used the old wet Q tip method and some fine tipped tweezers and it came right off.

Thursday - T. apophysis - nerve racking the whole time. First molt for this "sling" in my care. Maybe 3i-4i. Can't believe they call them slings. Huge! Little issue with an upper section between the abdomen and carapace but I think were good. Completely planted set up so I cranked the humidity up and waited. Must have softened it a bit as it's mostly gone now.

Friday - E. murinus
Saturday - E. cyanognathus
Sunday - I. mira

I THINK my T. albo freebie is molting. It's closed off its burrow and I can see there's some kind of business going on in there. Lots of squirming around in place. I'll be glad when it grows from teeny AF to not quite as teeny AF. My eyesight isn't what it used to be lol!

My Homoeomma orellanai sling molted and after five years and six molts it looks like......wait for it......a sling still. No color whatsoever.

UPDATE: since I made this post, I have found that my B. hamorii has molted, and I am now able to confirm that she is officially mature.

I am currently waiting on my G. porteri sling as well as both of my B. emilia to molt, whenever that will be.
