    Hi all, I have an adult Mexican Red Knee. She needs a clean viv and I have one prepared ready for her. I'm aware, though, that she last moulted around this time last year (it was early May, if I remember correctly). She's slow, she's off her food and she's got a very big bum. When is the...

    Both my A. Genics have now moulted and look beautiful, but I noticed a difference in colour in them and was wondering if that is just different for each spiderling, the same as temperament can vary, or if there's another explanation. Cuddles at moulting: 4 days after, first feed, nice even...

    My b.boehmei has moulted and the moult has stuck on the top of her abdomen, she's a sling, is there anything I can do to help it come off? I'm hoping keeping the humidity high might help? What is the chances of it coming off on its own?
