antinous' Collection Growth diary

    Decided to keep a growth diary/log of my Pamphobeteus species. Thought it would be interesting to look back on in the future once they're all adults. They’re all kept at the same temp (80-85 day, 75 night), and will be fed at the same intervals while they’re slings (not that it matters since some are larger than others).

    Let's get right to it (all the original sizes listed are from the dealers, will update once they molt):

    Female Pamphobeteus sp. 'platyomma' - 2.5"

    Pamphobeteus sp. 'cascada' - 1"

    Pamphobeteus sp. 'flammifera' - 3/4-1"
    Little ‘girl’ (hopeful lol) ran right into it hide after unboxing so I’ll leave it be, it’s the smallest one of the group.

    Pamphobeteus sp. 'magna' - 1"

    Pamphobeteus cf. antinous 'A' - 1 1/4"

    Pamphobeteus cf. antinous 'B' - 1 1/4"

    Caught the P. sp. ‘flammifera’ out while it was eating:

    Oddly enough it seems like the P. cf. antinous are the ones who aren’t so great eaters so far.

    Two new additions:
    0.0.2 Pamphobeteus sp. ‘Machala’
    1 1/4”-1 1/2”

    0.1 Pamphobeteus sp. ‘platyomma’ molted
    Was approx. 3” before and now I’m guessing it added in at least 0.5” (anybody care to chime in approx. how much growth they put on?). Last molt was July 10th +/- 5 days according to the vendor.

    0.0.1 Pamphobeteus sp. magna molted
    Looks like it almost doubled in size! Hoping it’s a female, if anyone can tell from this pic, lmk!

    0.0.1 Pamphobeteus sp. ‘flammifera’ molted, didn’t expect this much of a jump in size!

    antinous Pamphoprince Arachnosupporter

    Couldn’t measure the flammifera molt, was too damaged unfortunately.

    But here’s the magna (suspect male) molt and recently molted (and confirmed male) antinous:
    magna was a over 1 1/2”
    antinous was a bit over 2”

    Now this is him freshly molted:

    They both will also be staying out of the incubator now and will be kept around 69-80 depending on the day. The others are and will be kept 79 during the night 81-85 during the day.

    Suspect female Pamphobeteus sp. ‘cascada’

    Almost 2”, so she’s probably around 2.75-3”

    Don’t have a photo of the molt, but it was around 1.5”. I’m guessing it’s at least 2-2.5 inches now

    Pamphobeteus sp. ‘mascara’ B (above was supposed to be A)

    Didn’t get a photo of the measurements, but it was right around 1.75-2”.

    Love how the carapace is darker compared to the other even though it’s not more an 1” large than the other

    P. sp. ‘machala’ A molted

    Very cool to see it showing some pink already, unlike the cascada or magna, which are of similar size

    Right at 2”

    Now I’m guessing it’ll be around 3”
