    Question

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Took some pics of Sassy molting the other night and figured i would share with you all since alot of people have never seen a tarantula molt befour or how they do it..
    First shes on her back on a pillow bed of her webbing. sorry the pic is blurry it was befour i adjusted the cam. Also you will notice in some pics white dew drops on her as i always mist my Ts as they are molting extra humidity helps the process along.

    Then she poped her top and is slowly pushing her self out of the old exoskeloton.

    Fangs are white till the blood flow gets cerculating and they harden and turn black once again.

    and almost done,

    and now done and just relaxing after a long strugle to get free and working the blood flow to all her body parts.

    and after now right side up and recooping. will take 1 week for her to harden and be able to eat prey once again.

    There body always seems so tiny afterwards till there blood flow gets going and they harden then you can tell they are bigger than they were befour molting..

    Nice pictures. I had a rose hair that molted quite a few times.

    Yours looks like the type my brother had way back when, that one got lose in the house 2 weeks before we moved. I just can't imagine if the new owners found it walking around.

    Very interesting. Do you do anything with the exoskeletons?

    Hey PlantAKiss, no i dont do anything with the molts but my better half JR use to preserve um and take um to his old shop and scare the crap outa his boss and buddies when he worked there, alot of people use them for things. I use to give some nice molts to the kids when they was little so they could take um to school show people and the teachers. I have 4 new baby T's commin in i cant wait..

    glider14, if your T molted then passed away could be it was a male as they are very very short lived once they have there last molt to maturity. They tend to live anywheres from weeks to several months befour passing..

    Thanks Gawd_oOo.. Sassy and one of my new babies commin in are gona be my only terrestrial Ts as i adopted out all 79 of my others awhile back and i am setting up a display/tank of several compartments with pokies in each one as im more into pokies=ornamental tree tarantulas, im also working on getting a few very rare pokies there are only a few in the US right now and most are not old enough for the breeders to get egg sacks out of, but some CP=captive bred babies have made it across into the US there just so darn expensive right now for just a 1/2 inch baby.
