    Is my T dying?

    He/she molted like a week ago, and now its on its back again. I'm scared it might be dying. It might be because we changed up the enclosure earlier today cause a superworm decided to burrow in the T's enclosure. Im pretty new to tarantula keeping too so i'm really scared.

    G.pulchra molt

    Hey everyone, I can't make out anything on this molt. I am thinking male but also still too small to tell. This is a 1.5 to 1.75 in pulchra. Tried looking under a microscope but still wasn't really sure if I could make out anything. Attached are bunch of different photos in different lighting to...

    Strange Avicularia molting process...

    My A. purpurea has never been a webber in the slightest since i got it, I simply figured that it would start webbing once it finally needed to molt. (lol i was wrong) Anyway I found its shed skin clinging to the side of its leaning corkbark. Has anyone else ever heard of this? It appears ok I'm...

    Hi everyone, Today I get to sex my very first molt and I barely got it out intact! To be honest, I'm not quite sure if what I'm looking at is spermatheca or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Almost Molted?

    Hey guys, so my 1in T is about to molt, showing all the signs. Today I went and took a look at him and I found him on his back in a classic molt position. However, when I went back to look again roughly 20 minutes later he was upright and walking around. Anyone have any clue what could have...

    Mexican Red Knee not feeding - did not shed fangs in recent molt

    My tarantula, Doris, shed her skin nearly a fortnight a go. After a week she normally eats many locusts for a few weeks to catch up on missed food. It has been unusual for her not to eat anything this last week and after reading a post about fangs I've just had close look and her old skin...

    Help! I fed my avic. metallica directly after her molt!

    I was just feeding my avic metallica a small roach and accidentally dropped it in her web & when I looked in I realized there was a fresh molt in there! I panicked because I know if she attempts to eat before her fangs harden, that could be potentially fatal. Her web is shaped kind of like a...

    My gbb won't come out of its burrow.

    I have this gbb for about 3 months now, and it won't come out of that dumbass skull i bought her. She looks like in premolt and she doesn't eat anymore, but it's been 3 months now. Shouldn't she have molted already?

    Still kind of shy after the molt. Thinking of feeding on Wednesday (it's fangs look black, but i want to make sure they are hard enough).
