Haha.. yes, it's a waste not to be able to capture that moment. Sometimes, it's just luck.

We're always checking on their progress when we're back from work.. when we wake up.. or when we have got nothing else beter to do..

But... they choose to remain indifferent..

One day we are out for a moment and then.. BAM!! molted Razz

It's like they're waiting for that one day we're not there to disturb them, so that they can molt in peace. lol

They are "sexable" via a pectine count. Let me know if you need a comparative photo.

Anyway, he's charming! Smile

I am sexing them based on the chela on the male which was not close hermetic (some gab in between) while the female chela is close hermetic. Will take some photos as comparison once available farao
