Ive noticed that my PT has gotten much fatter since I got her about 3 months ago I feed one cricket once a week, but lately Ive noticed that she has been sitting in the spot where i mist once a month. I got her from Ken and i dont know if he keeps them together or not so im kinda leaning more towards premolt. Let me know what you think GS, Pluto im talking to you guys lol and anyone else of course too Wink

I presume you've ordered an adult female, I might be wrong but all seems good with pic #1 & 2 Smile

I've raised my P.trans from 2.instar and mated them at 8.instar, signs of gravid shows in the 4-5th month of pregnancy. It's best to check with Ken if any chance she's been mated before or a wild caught (as most WC adults are already gravid).
Do you have an adult male to further test if she's gravid?

Meanwhile, its good to shower her with the conditions suitable for a gravid mum.
Keep one side of the tank slightly hotter than the other (e.g. With infra red heat lamp), ensure good ventilation and availability of a hide and place a small capful of water at a corner of the tank. Fill it weekly.

lolz.. why did you ask if she's gravid or premolt when you are saying she's a sub-adult?

She's really looking gorgeous and big without a size comparison item around Smile

Pic #1 & 2 has some similarities like my gravids' (will post up pics in my P.trans thread soon)
