    So in my experience pokies molt quickly. Usually 6 weeks between molts. Well, I have a 4" P. Metallica that is taking extra long to molt. It's been well over 2 months and she's still eating. Is it possible to believe that it might be a female since females take longer to grow? Maybe I shouldn't hype it. :D

    That's waaaaaaaaaaay too subjective IMO. Too many variables.
  3. Seems like at 4 in. you could go ahead and sex it ventrally or by the next molt.
