My Pterinopelma sazimai got rehoused a few weeks ago. Hasn't left the little burrow under its leaf! Now I know why! Lots of yoga going on! Here's a before and after to show how the colors have come in!

I came down this morning to two Rhombodera stalli mantids in one enclosure. Taking a better look, one of them looked paler than the other. I gently touched both with the tweezers & then removed the one that was the molt.

My Phormictopus atrichomatus and psalmopoeus cambridgei. Unfortunately, I hadn't noticed the p.cambridgei had molted as it had tucked itself away behind one of its hides and I caught it while I was dampening the substrate and it went flying, it's only like a 2cm sling, so hopefully, it'll be ok but its got me worried.

Three molts yesterday. The first was my B boehmei, we found her upside down with the molt beside her. I think it was her second molt with us. The next molt was spotted in our versicolor's webbing, but only after my wife had spotted a white versicoloro_Oo_O Then doing a check of our T's, my wife saw her G pulchra turn it's self over onto it's back. About two hours later we had a probable female pulchra. It was another not great molt to sex. But we are reasonably sure.

The pulchra was the one I brought for my wife back in August from @Phil. The Spider House. And was her first molt with us, but she has had a huge bum for weeks, so we knew it was coming. She is currently a gorgeous silky black colour.

We had three molts yesterday. The first was my B boehmei. I was checking water & found her on her back with a molt beside her. Well we are 99% sure she is female. The molt was not the best, but it certainly looks right for a female. This was her second molt with us I think.

Molt two came when my wife spotted our versicolor looking whiteo_Oo_O
