    Molting question update

    Hi again. I had posted a question on behalf of my tarantula potentially molting, but I was concerned with his lack of movement. It has been about 2 weeks since I first noticed it.

    Molting issue?

    Hi there! I’m a new tarantula keeper in the hobby and I’m a little concerned about my grammostola pulchra. He is a little smaller and has only molted once since I had him. I think he’s in the premolt stage but I’m concerned about his pose and his complete lack of movement-he has stayed in this...

    Brazilian Black Sling

    Hi there, I’ve got a question regarding my G. Pulchra sling. He is about 1in right now and is taking forever to molt. He hasn’t molted in nearly 4 months. All of my other slings that are roughly the same size have molted twice in that time. Is it common for this particular species to take so...
