    My A. Chalcodes that I got last week and has been irritable is now molting standing up hidden in a corner. She did spin herself a molting web, but she is upright and not in any position to fully shed her exoskeleton. I leave in an hour for a trip to watch a relatives house and care for their...

    Pre-molt questions!

    Hi! My brachypelma hamorii has been in pre-molt for almost two months. She has molted two times with me, and on both times she molted pretty quickly after the first 'symptoms'. She's my first T, so I just want to know that is this normal? And I'm sure she's in pre-molt because she's hiding all...
