Mexican Golden Red Rump finally came out, looks to be 2" now. You can really start to see the tan colored carapace and red hairs on the abdomen starting to show.

Mexican Red Rump is now tearing out the top corner of foam to escape (just like the Brazilian Blue). I need to take out the foam tonight and try to readjust everything in the enclosure. At tkeast the Red Rump is pretty chill and just runs to its house when I open the top cover (not go into an aggressive threat pose like the Brazilian Blue).

Mexican Red Rump

You can see him chewing away at the foam in this pic (at the time I didn't know WTF he was doing).

Brazilian Blue's abdomen is getting some hairless spots (not to mention it is huge) so it will probably be molting sometime in the near future.

No new molts (even with the recent hot weather) so I'll post a few new pics for the hell of it.
