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 just a little surprised because I knew they could molt upright, but clinging to the side of a vertical structure? Must be exhausting x'D

They can molt like this with no problem. One of my Avicularia molted in a normal “standing” position! :)
