a moult is basically where a t rids itself of its old skin in order to grow. during the process, the T will flip itself onto its back and lay in that position for several hours, do not disturb it! it will then slowly wriggle out of its old skin, producing a new, in theory slightly bigger, very bright T. if your humidity levels are too low, this could cause the T to get stuck in its skin and die, so keep an eye on the levels. dont offer any of them any food for several days as they will not eat until their new skin has hardened and the crickets/locusts or wotever may cause harm to ur T. hope this helps
