There is no "last" molt for female Ts, she will molt throughout her entire life. Congrats though, I can't wait for my female versi to molt!

forgive me if I'm wrong but I'm sure he's saying His girl is finally an adult.

That is what I thought as well, but his wording is wrong. :wall: I thought I would point it out anyway though because he may be coming from the scorpion side of the hobby, and those do have a final molt or instar.

Yep, thats what I meant. :) I am very excided, I will have now two adult females(this one and B. smithi).

And also my P. cambridgei juvenile female baricaded herself into a hole with web, I belive she is preparing for molt and my newcomer A. geniculata doesen't eat as well and doesen't move much around her enclosure, I think s/he will molt as well.

Sorry for my expresion, with all my knowlage of english and even that I speak it very fluently, I make some mistakes. I speak it better than my mother languge though. :D No, I didn't come from the scorpion side of the hobby. :D Though I am still a bit new to the bird spider hobby, one year and a half to be more precise and I own only four of them by now. :)
