She hardly eats and is growing fat! I think she's full size so i doubt its a moult.

Fingers crossed

Good luck!

Any sign of embryos through the membrane? This species is small enough that I suspect they'd be visible as she gets close.

if you bought it from martingoss at newark then it is subadult. all of his were...aparently. mine is getting quite chubby now so should moult. he bred them himself and kept them individually as far as i know for their whole lives.
be interesting if it does have a brood.

I might see embryos in the last pic . . . barely. It doesn't look very promising in terms of babies.

it looks like my OCF at the moment and that is in premolt, exactly the same shape.
I'll try and get a picture up when the batteries from my camera have charged!
