The Measure of a Cam (♀ Psalmopoeus cambridgei 5")

Squirt, who was once a runt, is now every bit of 5", and she wants you to know it.

      @cold blood Look how big Squirt is getting. She is starting to get her mossy green coloring.

      Now would you say Squirt is about full grown? Just trying to get an idea if my new cambridgei is fully grown. Dorothy is about that big. I also have a mature male, which is why I am curious.

      @volcanopele I believe the females max out around 7". (Males would likely mature a bit smaller.)

      Of course, females may reach sexual maturity before they reach maximum size.

      hmm, okay. yeah, if that’s the case, I’m going to hold off... Unfortunate, but I want to be on the safe side in case she isn’t quite sexually mature. Their enclosures are next to each other so I will keep an eye out for tapping, but yeah, otherwise, I’m not going to pair them.

      This is fine. I didn’t get her for breeding, strictly, I got her to replace Toto since he isn’t long for this world.

      @volcanopele Next time she molts, examine the exuviae. If she is sexually mature, the spermathecae will have sclerotized. (This will make them appear darker than those of an immature female.)
