My pink toe tarantula (Avicularia avicularia), Tip Toe, FINALLY MOLTED today! I can't even remember the last time she molted, it's been at least a year.
Caught her when she was just starting and watched her on and off for an hour or so. It's a fascinating process which I had never actually seen, I've always managed to catch her just after she finishes. Here she is about halfway through:Close up of the pretty new fangs:When she finished I very carefully took away the old skin so she'd have room to turn over. It's important a molting tarantula doesn't get disturbed during the process.
I'll get more photos once she's completely hardened up and ready to be handled again (oh yes, I play with her, she's a friendly tarantula).
