    After the molt, it was time to clean out the cage. Patrick is an extremely patient T, didn't even get upset as I tore the fetid molting web away!!


    Heck, he might've been happy to see it gone.

    Silly me!! I didn't realize that there was no back door exit to the web this time, not his fault.

    Nevertheless, he redeemed himself, didn't even move as the web was stripped away.

    Yes, I did stick the cellphone into the cage to get these last 2 pics. All pics were taken with the flash bulb AND a flashlight on him at the same time from above.

    This proves that he has the greatest mental stability of any of my tarantulas.
