Well I just peeked into the little tub our N. coloratovillosum is in and there the little beast was sittiing next to it's shed all pertiful.
I know slings harden pretty fast but the last I checked him and the others was this morning at 8 AM.
The twins were making their rounds "kissing" all their critters bye for the day.
He was feet down and grooming by his little hide.
And he's prowling all around his little tub now.
Cute as a button.
I'll post pics as soon as I can get a few clear shots.
Hes a inch now. :)

Thanks thanks.
And glad you lil one is eating again vulpina. :)
Willy, our L. parynannerninny is closing up the entrance to her burrow and stopped eating last week.
And that little monster Never stoped eating.
The bald spot is still pinkish though so I guess she just got full.
But knowing our weird T's that Never follow the moult handbook she might decide to come out in fiveminuts and eat then go legs up five minuts after that and moult on me.
Or not at all.
I've quit Watching for moults and check things out when I put prey items in.
They happen when they happen and I watch them if I can and am tickled when they come out of it healthy.

nice!

All my 'best' T's are in pre-moult so my spider watching is pretty minimal as they all are grumpy and sluggish.. I've resorted to spending more time on the s'lings, resulting in two temporary escapes int he last two days :S

haha I caught them both though

Hmmm my avic is far from docile aswell!

haha premoult Geniculatas are the best, they try to run away fast and simply can't, but they make a nifty scuttle noise

Matt, I'm pretty sure it's PMS. (Pre Moult Syndrom. :D )
Her rear has a bald spot thats gone pretty dark.
The darker it's gotten the pissier she's become.
I have a male as well and I want to try breding them.
But I don't Dare put him in with her now.
She's easly twice his size and I KNOW would put a munch on him in half a second.
beside if she's going to molt it would be an awful waste to lose the load he would give her.
So. Will wait till she moults. Give her a month or so and feed the hell out of her and hope she lets him live long enough to do the deed when it's his time to go it and step up to the plate.
