It's always awesome when you see a T emerge for the first time looking for food :D

Currently, my C. darlingi and M. robustum are deep in their burrows. Just waiting...

Those are always exciting times. I just had one of my H. macs come out of it's web domain nearly twice the size and needing a rehouse.

But are you feeding it?

If you are one of those folks who feed it one or two crickets a week its going to take forever to molt.

Try feeding it a Roach of the biggest size (compared to its body) how warm/cold do you keep your house?

Most of my Ts (except two) are 2" or smaller I've had them all since July 5 and they've molted at least once except the G iheringi because well the Grammostola genus isnt known for their molting speed lol.

I feed all my Ts 4-5 crickets a week or however many theyll eat within a week.

She eats, drinks, and hangs out. Her sister has a subadult female. I feed my spiders daily lol. Everyone molts all the time except her.

Have you tried... fruit? Lol, if you do, do it at your own risk. I've only tried it with my one albo, and a piece of watermelon (though I'm planning on trying more soon). There is scientific evidence though, that other species of true spiders and mygalomorphs benefit from fruit.

My Aphonopelma seemanni sling closed the entrance of her burrow a week ago. So... The waiting game starts. I feel like she just got out of there, I had only few weeks time to enjoy her presence and now she's back. Gosh :D

Brachypelma vagans sling is also burrowed and I expect her to come out within a week or so, she recently molted.

Geez, I thought all the excitement was for an egg sac. Molting?
I have yet to dabble in breeding haha but maybe one day she will have the opportunity :)
Moulting is quite exciting to me tho tbh.
