Anansi Anew!

I noticed Anansi lying on her back in the back of her cage early this morning! I don't think she has molted in 4 years!

Anansi was faster than SFB with her molt, by a couple of hours. They are similar in size.

Look at that beautiful black! I'll have to get some post-molt pics of all three of these babies soon. Lots of our little spiderlings have molted lately, too. I need to post at least an update on them.

  1. These are beautiful pics, and just plain cool to look at. I don't know much about these guys, but all things nature-related appeal to me!
