My large female genic has been portly and pre-moult for some time. At 9pm last night, she finally flipped over. Nothing much happened until 1am, which is where these pictures start. Unfortunately i forgot to time when each picture was taken, but the final picture was 2:15am.

Looked to have put on about an inch on the legspan. Have to wait until she's feeling less groggy for a true measurement, but she's about 6.5" legspan now i estimate.

Thanks,

Just waiting for her to harden off, and then i'll attempt to see how big she is. Still very bad company at the moment, loveing to kick those hairs at me :( Normally she's fine for handleing, so hopefully after she's feeding again, she'll be okay.
