    Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens slingy molted sometime during mid-day/afternoon yesterday. Found the molt in the evening. Looked like a smooth and successful molt! It's carapace is about 25-40% larger. Man, I love these genus of T's.

    As always, a bit of soapy water and some manipulation and got the molt into a general position for optimal viewing. I might keep this one and further molts for size comparison for future progress, Haha
