24 May - 3.5cm
26 June - 4.5cm
19 July - 5.5cm

I've got two little smithi males (now at about 4 cm) which grow very slowly. One moult way before winter cool-down, then another in spring.

My Grammostola pulchra female grew pretty fast - from sling up to 8 cm within one and a half years. My other G. pulchra sling (2 cm, looks female, too) is a very slow grower with just one moult since March.

I suppose there are individual differences within one species, but also temps and feeding patterns will play a significant role.

Hi,

I posted pics from its last shed and many members said that it was male. I am waiting for the exuvium to dry and I will post pics again. I didn't see a flap on the last shed ...

So, who wants their female to hookup with my male ?

or does anyone have a mature female for sale?

Thanks

MY smithi eats like a champ but doesent grow fast. am actually slowing down the feeding a bit because his/her (don't know yet) abdomen is getting huge. Dont want it to go POP!
