I have 2 OBT slings that were sacmates and one that is about 2.5" that is from another source. Last week I discovered that all 3 molted the same day. Now I can understand the two sacmates but the 3rd seemed like an odd coincidence. Was it just coincidence or is it possible an outside influence brought this on?

I think its often times outside influence, but I have no proof. IME Ts seem to molt when I have recently added extra humidity and at warmer times. It would make sense to me that If most of the things I did were based on instinct that when things felt right I would go for a molt. I think I was up to around 70+ Ts at one point this summer and I would often have 10 at a time molt all at once. Keep in mind most of my Ts are under 2" so there is a greater chance of them molting anyways.
