    So peeps my Red Fang Wandering Spider has moulted, dodgy pic but it's on the roof and I don't want to disturb it lol The moult is at the water dish, completely outgrown the enclosure but I've been putting off a rehouse for obvious reasons :D How long should I wait before feeding? Same as T's? Cheers

    Forgot to post my recent molts. Both of these were Sunday the 8th.

    Roj, my B. sabulosum, his molts just to the left of him inside hide, you can see one leg there ;)

    And then Chum, my LP has new skin. And was kind enough to leave his molt on the water dish for me.

    Just got back from my trip to see this. I'm hoping it's not an upside-down death curl. My son's tiny A. chalcodes, but he says she's been like that since last night. Over almost 24 hours for a spider that small. I took my smallest make up brush and my fear was right. It's dead and dried out.

    On a good note Zeb, my A. seemanni finally molted yesterday. Can just see his molt on the left side.

    And my son's D. pentaloris molted Sunday.
    He's in the tunnel behind the molt, ignore the poop stains he made those while in premolt.

    My E.sp Red moults every once 6 months. It's 2 years old and only 0.5" although it's looking as though there may be a moult soonish.

    They are known to be terribly slow growers so I hope you have lots of patience.
