    Today I received an OBT as well as a Fort Hall Baboon, family Pterinoclus. Does anyone know their growth rates? I've never owned a T in this family, and don't know how fast I can expect them to grow? They are both less than 3 inches. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    They grow moderately fast, especially if you satisfy their voracious appetites. My newborn OBT sling males generally reached maturity in about 2 years, with 4.5~4.75" legspans. My more limited experience with P. lugardi has left me with the impression that they are similar.
