    caught Savage, my son's A. genic molting last night. It's flipped back over this morning and recovering. Eyeballing the molt through the enclosure I suspect it's a female Savage, but hopefully the molt will be intact enough to sex it this time when i get home tonight. :)

    Pantera, my tiny G. rosea, molted yesterday. Couldn't get a pic, he's still hiding in his burrow.

    he's 1/2" maybe 3/4" dls now. i got him at barely 1/4" dls back in October. He's molted 3 times now counting the molt in March. 12/23/16, 1/28/17, and 3/26/17, so every other month-ish.

    Not usually and I've only had this one a couple of weeks but looking at how much it's grown with this moult I think I might have to consider moving it to a bigger container.
