PostSubject: Molting sequence of my Rhopalurus Junceus   6/13/2009, 5:04 am

Just now while surfing the internet i notice Nadare (R.Junceus) is shaking its metasoma violently from side to side while walking on a piece of vertical bark
At first i thought something is wrong with her until she begin positioning herself vertially and placed both of her chela in front of its carapace
Straight away, i noticed she is going to molt and i immediately spray some water on the wall of the tank as the substrate are pretty dried up, my bad Sad
Here are some pictures to share

The starting position...

The carapace cracked and she started pulling out her chela and legs



Legs out

Showing me a double peace sign telling me she is ok although her chela is badly twisted in this picture

Almost there...

And there she is out of her old case


With the molt just now, it make her 6instar now
She was purchased for a breeding project with few of my other friends hoping that we can get hold of this beautiful species in our country in the future without importing them
Just one more molt to go and she is ready to have some sexy time!
