when you have hundreds of spiders and other invertebrates, molts become a near-daily occurrence. But they never get old!
Some of this week's molts include our adult female Poecilotheria ornata, our adult female Xenesthis sp. Blue, and one of our big adult female Damon diadema. Molts with older individuals can be a bit nerve-wracking because the process is so energy-intensive.
Providing lots of fresh water and warmth in the days and weeks leading up to a molt is essential to a successful molt.
