Stromatopelma calceatum female, she was making a web hammock last night, and this morning I discovered her emerging from her molt and grooming. 48 days of pre-molt.

My AF P. cambridgei, Crawlspace, molted today. It looks like everything went well and she's starting to move around and groom herself. Probably my favorite tarantula in my collection, so I'm pretty excited. I knew it was going to happen any day because last night she was hiding underneath her cork round, and she's usually out on full display.

Carmen, my AF P. auratus, emerged from her den after molting last week. I was so stunned by her beauty that my jaw was on the floor. IMG_20210410_211303125.jpg

My T sabulosus did yesterday - my first moult as a keeper! She started (or at least, I first noticed her on her back) about 5.30pm and when I went to bed about 2.30am she was pretty much out, sitting next to the exuvium flexing her chelicerae. She was kind of still curled up though, and is today in her burrow, so I haven't really had a good look at her yet, though I did last night see the red on her abdomen has come through quite nicely. Sadly the abdomen was too chewed up for sexing to be on the cards. Can't wait to see her out and about, in any case!

My G. pulchra is molting right now, got it in 2i and when everything goes alright it will be in 5i. It molts regurarly every 4-6 weeks since its with me, I think its a good speed for a pulchra.

While my G. pulchra has molted successfully (upwards), now my Phormictopus sp. Dominican purple lie on its back!

Okay, now my P. tirgrinawesseli lie on its back :singing:

One of my P. Regalis (4") molted while I was at work yesterday! Yellows are starting to come in nicely. Little bugger is sitting right over the molt though so I haven't pulled it out. Hoping I can get it in good enough shape to sex it.

Surprise suspect female C. Versicolor molt this morning! From 2+ish inches to nearly 3 from what i've seen.
The exuviae is still deep in its web tunnel. Hope it wont be too mangled up so i can sex it :happy:

Snagged an intact molt from my Phormictopus sp. Dominican purple sling and was able to look at it under the microscope. It's a female!
