    The healing power of molting...

    Well after having a epic fail with using the head camera and trying to film a breeding I went to bed defeated. When I woke Morticia my P. Metallica who lost 3 legs in a previous molt had molted and now has all of them back....whoo hooo. They r very skinny but it is really cool. I tried to post a pic but it wouldn't let me even after I compressed it. Still amazing to me how they can do that.......
    P.s. Mr. And Mrs. Smith r still in the 55 gallon, he tried by touching her but when she moved he ran like he was on fire...lol. Got some pics.

    That is awesome to hear. I got a H. lividum with a badly injured tarsus and it has molted twice, but still needs one more molt before it's completely back to normal. It is amazing that tarantulas are basically their own doctors.
