King Molted Again

Elmo suddenly noticed that King was molting this morning. He was already nearly finished by this time. Here are some photos we got soon after he noticed.

King last molted 4 months ago. We were concerned he might get stuck again, but there were absolutely no problems this time.

Also, he does not appear to have come out black this time. The hairs all over him are crazy long! His legs are very thick, too. Elmo is convinced that King is really a Queen. I can't tell if there is an epigastric furrow in the photo or not. Perhaps it is still too soon to tell.
