    Thanks, it's the first time I've been able to catch the full moult on camera with a big T.:)

    It certainly is, although Rio is one that I feel I don't need to worry so much about.

    Awesome! Love the red/black contrast on the abdomen- it really pops in the post-molt pics. Really looking forward to mine molting because her abdomen is almost completely bald now. She's serious about the hair-kicking :rolleyes:
