Will this be his last molt? :? We'll see!

He is about 5" :eek: right now without the molt increase.

I'll take pics when he's about wrapped up.

Here's one on his back right after flipping over......

Here he is.... Male Acanthoscurria chachoana (Bolivian Salmon Pink).

Well...at this size and the fact I got a good molt I have concluded my thoughts of him being an actual him.

He didn't take on much size with this molt. He's about 5.5" now. There no tibial hooks or bulbs of the pedipalps so he didn't mature this molt like I had thought he was going to. So this will give me some time for finding him a female for potential breeding at a later date.

Here's a shot of the Exuvium
Here's are two shots of him after his molt

Nice Chris maybe he knew my female was not mature yet so he decided he wanted to wait till she matured lol.
