    My little Orphnaecus philippinus, Vigan, moulted yesterday and normally I'm fairly quick to remove the old exo but last night the T was still sitting on it so rather than distress Vigan I left it. Big mistake!!! Checking on the T this morning I found Vigan in exactly the same position. Using tweezers I got hold of the exo only to get no reaction from the T and then realised the moult was still attached. How I wish now that I had attempted to remove the moult yesterday I may have been able to help and save it. It was the abdomen that was the problem.

    This was how I found it yesterday
