Unidentified wild caught spider. I never understood the size difference after a molt until now. It's now about 1/4" DLS. Before I'd guess it was about 3/16"DLS (~4.8 -> 6.4mm). As I type this it's running around it's enclosure. I'm looking forward to identifying and sexing it when it gets bigger.

Avic avic is molting right now.
I actually thought she was dead until I started counting toes. Once I hit 12, I figured it out.

Lampropelma nigerrimum "Sangihe Black"
If it's not a female this time, I will give up on buying slings of this species.

Hahahaha. I'm just kidding, I couldn't resist when I read your post about if you get a other male instead of female.

Poecilotheria ornata, smaller female molted. She’s getting pretty darn big now.
Caribena versicolor male #2 molted. He’s a little better than half the size of his brother, which I keep in a warm room.

My big female A. geniculata molted today. She was already over 6 inches DLS. She seems to molt almost every 3 months for the past 2 1/2 years. I got her as a freebie and was excited she ended up being a lady. She has a big old booty too. Very good eater. 7F115632-8300-4B5D-94E7-E69D56C8B208.jpeg

My cyriopagopus sp. hati hati molted today. I had suspected that she was female due to her coloration, and today that was confirmed! Very happy.

This week:

Aphonopelma eutylenum 0.0.1
Dolicothele diamantinensis 0.1

super excited to confirm one of my D. diamantinensis as female! She’s the one in my profile picture.

Thats incedribly fast. Normally when A. geniculata hits 4-5" they molt once a year IME. My 5" female molted last year April/May and she has made the molting mat the last days. A molt is very near, cant wait!

Homoeomma sp. gold. Went to water and found it in its back. Nearly two hours later it started to molt and 30 minutes later success. Talk about a nail biter.

Went on vacation for a week and came back to a molt from my B. hamorii and A. chalcodes (this one surprised me). I'm so surprised my A. chalcodes molted so soon. She didn't grow one bit 😆
