Brachypelma smithi moult 18.4.2015

Funny smithi since it decided to moult out in the open. It has a nice hide right next to this open corner. But nope. Out in the open it was. But all went well with the moult and the colours of its new coat are amazing.

X blue

Xenesthis sp. blue is looking slightly more grown-up since its last moult. There are now some red hairs on its abdomen and the blue colours on the legs and carapace are deeper so it doesn't look simply like a pale, fluffy, bristly spider. I've tried crickets and waxworms but it's still been fasting after the moult. For almost a month. Some tarantula species and eating are just far too often a problem. I'll just trust that even a tiny baby like this will eventually eat once it feels like it.
