    Acanthoscurria Geniculata problem...

    Legs disappeared 33 days ago and reemerged on the second of December. She has not molted yet. I am, however, concerned. First concern, odd behavior: doesn't want to eat but drinks tons (for a spood) of water. Today and yesterday, that's all she has done. Not moving much but constantly...

    G. Pulchra Pre-molt or just living her best life?

    Hello all, relatively new to the hobby, got my first T about 18 months ago, but first time sling owner.

(Last time it ate was 26 days ago) I had been waiting for more sings that would indicate premolt... and these past days the little guy seemed a bit anxious. He/She is always pretty chill but now it was...

    Juvenile B. Hamorii not eating... how long can it go without food? possible premolt?

    Last time my T ate was 16 days ago. Before that, it went for a whole month without food. Its abdomen seems fine, I don't think it has lost weight. I mean I know it's normal but since it's my first and only T I don't have much personal experience. Also, he/she's a huuge hair kicker. Like, it's...
