PostSubject: My P.Cav Finally Molted!   11/15/2008, 8:22 pm

Hey guys, haven't been posting a whole lot lately (although that means I haven't been having too many issues) but I think that Tenacious my P Cavimanus is going to molt soon, she hasn't been eating as much (little more than a month now) and has gotten bigger, I think I can see the areas where her new tergites will come though, are there any clear signs right before the molt? I can see the indents of her new exoskeleton in the 'soft skin' between the top and bottom. Pretty excited for her to molt, she's gunna be so big!

The only clear sign I've ever gotten is when they're FAT and I can see tergites through the membrane. That may be more difficult with something as large as a Pandinus (thicker membrane = harder to see through).

I hope I can catch her in the act and get some nice pictures, and I hope it happens before I head back up north, winter break soon, traveling in cold cold weather poop.

i've only ever seen a shed in progress once and it was fantastic.

I hate waiting for them to shed though, like when they're gravid you think they cant go on much longer... and they do!

It's finally happening! We were sleeping and I got up, so I decided to check on Tenacious when BAM she's halfway out of her skin! I really hope the humidity where she is is enough for her, is there any way to tell?

Yeah, she's all like wet spaghetti.... eeeeeeew. I was wondering how she would 'fix' her chela, but when I took my periodic looks at her... just... bam fixed *shrugs* Imagine if people molted and your parents saved your molts?

So Tenacious may actually be a boy now... lol, she was incredible hard to sex, being immature. But now her chela have a much more pronounced tooth and potentially a dent, I still have to wait and see for them to harden up from molting, and have her come out of her hole so I can get a good look... but what an interesting development that would be.
