Hi Dimitri, all my T's have been molting like it's some kind of deadline. Except for my L.parahybana, which has been starving for 2 months, then fed on a big roach, then back to starving again now almost two weeks. She drinks water regularly, but won't feed at all.

Anyway, still searching for the right camera, phone photo's just no good. Will post then. ;)

Africa is a tough country. When the going gets tough, we get going.

Hi Dimitri, almost all my T's have molted in September / October, hopefully some might molt again?

But one of the best molts happened yesterday - my Accanthoscurria Geniculata (first of the really large T's I have that molted). Turns out it's a girl...whoohoo!! Now I'm just waiting for my Nhandu Tripepii, Nhandu Chromatus, Brachypelma Albopilosum and Lasiodora Parahybana to Molt as well. They are the biggest T's I own (well, at least they were before the others molted). Then all of my T's would have molted since I got them.

Glad to hear it's molting season, so chances are good they will molt soon.

The biggest thing you can live life for, is to live it for something that will outlast it.

Lasiodora Parahybana!!...now measuring 17cm :rock

Unfortunately the exuvium tore right across the epigastric furrow, making sexing a bit difficult (for me at least)

Hi Dimitri,

My B. vagans and N. chromatus have molted.

My initial thoughts about my B. boehmei were incorrect. It ate again last night, so its not in pre-molt.

My P. Regalis is still eating profusely so I don't think it'll molt soon.
