    I got my curly haired T as a birthday present from my arachnophobe daughter ( big surprise there)in late May. It is now July 16th and my little 8 legged bundle had her first molt ( with me anyway ) Shes a healthy little girl(?). I feel a bit vindicated since the Rose hair I had before wouldn’t molt for some reason and died. I feel like I got this one right. Good tank,right substrate, proper food. I want to thank everyone here who gave me advice about feeding, substrate , tank size and general advice. It really helped my understanding. Now to wait a few weeks and feed her some crickets then.
