I thought I'd start a new thread for people to share stories and pictures of their Tarantulas that have recently molted. I woke up to two this morning...

My teeny tiny Iridopelma hirsutum "Amazon ribbed" sling...3rd instar I believe. He was the runt of the group...glad he finally molted. His name is "Thing 5":D

View attachment 28733 And another Iridopelma hirsutum this morning.... @sdsnybny it must be contagious. :D:D:D
Yes it is I have a bunch still and they are starting to molt to 3i. When they hit 5i you get a speed increase and that's when I put them into an upside down Amac style enclosure. They web the very top just like an avic and always seem to run up and out....first the 2x2x4 then the 4x4x7 3/4.

My Heterothele gabonensis, Fang, moulted today but no chance of a photo, I've not seen more than a brief glimpse of it in the year I've had it.

Well, I almost got to see Fang

And a pick of Pech, the Theraphosinae sp. Roatan, that moulted on Friday
