[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..
