is she gravid? or premolt?

my Bothriurus keyserlingi, is my property for 8 months, and has always been fat.
she is not hungry, and she hides, and walk outside occasionally.

My guess would be gravid.

But one thing is for sure, she's fat!

I don't see any visible embryos and she sure is huge. I'm going to guess pre molt? But that's just a hunch that I'm 51% sure on.

Hi faco,
Just to clarify, do you mean 8 months looking like this.. rarely eats.. and just occasional sips of water?

yes, she has eaten about 4 or 5 times, She is hidden for a week, and reappears.
during the last 4 months, she has doubled in size.

sorry about my grammar

I would say not gravid. Embryos should be visible when it's near to the end of their gestation period.

By the way, no prob with the grammar.

keep us updated.

Cheers.
