Did he survive?
Thanks so much....because of you I am going to label my 2 A. Semani their new names Thing 1 and Thing 2, such an awesome name!!!!I thought I'd start a new thread for people to share stories and pictures of their Tarantulas that have recently molted. I woke up to two this morning... View attachment 28565
My 3" suspect male Poecilotheria regalis "Indian ornamental " with his new suit. His name is "Alice" View attachment 28566 My teeny tiny Iridopelma hirsutum "Amazon ribbed" sling...3rd instar I believe. He was the runt of the group...glad he finally molted. His name is "Thing 5"
So I just got a B. Hammori and literally I put the little guy in its enclosure and it molted, I can't completely see but do they not do molt mats?
He did not survive. No injuries that I am aware of. Ive heard of mature males molting but this is the first time I have had experience with it personally.Did he survive?
Interesting that he would molt again. Maybe he had an internal injury that triggered the molt?
He is a lovely boy these guys grow very large, I know many species have mature males at very small size but lasiodora parahybana males get really large very close to size of mature female
