My post molt g. pulchra is out three days. I just got a really good look at her and the chelicera are HUGE. She hasn't gone to her water yet and she's still stretching out. It's been several years since I had a molting juvie, but I swear I don't remember ever seeing chelicera this big...have I just forgotten??
Is this normal? She was only 3" premolt. Could they look huge because she hasn't hydrated the rest of her new body??? NO, man these babies are mammoth.... please tell me she is not ill and it's ok :(

Don't they along with other Grammostolas have some prominent chelicerae on the maturing sub adults? I know when my chaco gets bigger there's going to be some impressive fangs under there.

Cigs, I hope you are right :(

Bec, I can't take pics worth a poop. but I'm gonna have my sister take some when the T comes out of her hide. It's too fuzzy and would just glare if she took one through the peephole I have into her retreat.
