well introduced myself with picis of my baby other day but no-one bothered to reply so thought i'd try again, my baby is in middle of molt at mo she span her web yesterday and flipped on to it last night (out in open of tank rather than in hide) shes never been one to hide away, so weve had the full glory of seeing the whole thing,
