Versicolor molted, caught it hanging from the enclosure the other night. And my Y.diversipes chucked a molt this morning. But only the leg and chelcirae/frontal segment. The rest is in their web den. Very helpful!

Have a purpurea, a minatrix, and a metallica all ready to moult but not yet done. Shiny butts, darker by the day. E.cyanagothus has molted based on size, but hasn't ejected theirs from the den.

I have a few to report!! My P. cambridgei, Hapalopus Sp Columbia (large), H. Gigas (still has a do not disturb sign up and is down in the abyss) and my T. Vagans molted in the mail on the way over. He’s just a 1/4” squirt so i didn’t get pics of that either. Lots of legs lol!

One of our hamorii molted a couple of days ago & yesterday checking on him we noticed all was not well. One of her legs is malformed.
I am not too worried, it's not like he does not have 7 other good legs, or that he is a wild T. His food is provided weekly & one bad lag is no big deal.
This was their first molt with us & we know she is actually a he. The enclosure had no sticker on it, but we had always thought of him as a her.

If it bothers him too much, he will drop the leg. He’ll start growing it back the next molt.

Yes, I know thanks. I have had a few mystery gimp boxes from The Spider Shop & watching T's regrow legs is one of natures wonders.

I seem to have had a run of slings moulting this last week

Jobo, my Euthycaelus colonica. Sadly no pic of this one as there's too much web in the container.
