Chilobrachys dyscolus blue - was my first molt this year during the first week of January. This spider went from 1/2 inch dls or less last January to 2 3/4 inches this January. Just ripping through the enclosures! Lol.

2.5” G. pulchripes molted. At least 6-7hrs with the toes pointing up to the lawd before things started to happen.

Had a bad molt. Molted upright and got stuck, ended up being able to get all the legs and abdomen out using a small pair of tweezers, paintbrush, and paintbrush. Legs are still a bit messed up and it moves by dragging itself around, but it’s alive. Going to feed it a bit extra and put a few more water dishes in so it has easier access. Took out the hide and filled in the burrow because if it went into the tight space, I doubt it would be able to get out.

Died this morning/last night. Sexed to be female. Definitely stings a bit.

P. Irminia that I rehoused last week. Was ~4” now at least 4.5”, hard to say right now.

Getting this molt is gonna be fun times. I thought I’d be able to slip in and gently pull it but she turned so I abandoned the mission. If she dumps it out great, if not we go full on recovery after her first meal.

My P. sazimai sling that I suspected was male molted today and proved me wrong. She is definitely a female. I'm surprised how much her spermathecae developed compared to the last molt I examined. They weren't visible at all last time using the dissecting scope, and today I could see them. Pleasant surprise.

Just went down to check on the Ts and saw that after refusing food for 4-5 weeks my female B. boehmei has molted! 2nd time in my care in 11 months .
tough to get a good pic at this point. So lightly misted one side of enclosure and will leave her alone and check later.

Spotted a molt in my Chilobrachys sp “Electric blue” female’s enclosure today. The color is amazingly vibrant even in poor ambient light. Can’t wait to photograph her with my DSLR.
