Sounds normal to me James. Brachypelma's take forever to moult and hamorri are no exception. I've mentioned several times on various threads here that I have a 1cm B smithi sling that last moulted 86 days ago and isn't showing much in the way of premoult signs ATM, so gawd only knows when!

It is very normal, I have a T. albopilosum that has been in need of a molt since early 2018.

Definitely normal. My hamorii sling hasn't eaten since November! It molted again and still hasn't eaten (about 3 weeks). It's abdomen is still quite large. Just lives in it's burrow.

There's really nothing you can do. I had to detach from the urge to help when I started keeping. That has helped immensely when it comes to anxiety. I just let them do their thing and make sure the husbandry is up to snuff :)
