Homoeomma chilensis, Sept 2017
1.0 Pamphobeteus sp. ‘flammifera’ - molted three times since September
Of course she moults the weekend after I post this... lol.
Let's try again.
Also, another spider, Harpactira pulchripes #2.
G. pulchra, February 2018 (.75")
February 2019, (~2”), 4 molts later
(Same fake leaves )
H. chilensis, September 2017 (.25")
December 2018 (1.5”), 8 molts later
What kind of steroids do you have your H. chilensis on? Whatever it is, I want/need that!
He must’ve been sneaking out and finding steroids without my permission - you know how they like to explore. My second H. chilensis is still a bit smaller and refuses to molt again, if that’s any consolation.
Eight moults in 14 months? I was going to say... but the steroids totally makes sense. I'll have to leave some near my Ts and look the other way.
Mine has moulted 6 times since September 2017.
Lasiodora parahybana from Sep. 7, 2017:
Forgive the blurry photo, the T was tiny.
This is mine. It moulted twice until now and grew 1/2", if at all. It's in premoult though (I hope ), hasn't eaten in a month.
November 2017 (about 3/4 inch)
February 2019 (about 1 1/4 inch)
There you have it: 2 moults in 15 months and a growth rate not even a glacier could compete with.
Like yours, my other H. chilensis has molted 6 times since late September (I forgot that’s when I got them). Further proof that the one in the photos is on something. I would’ve shared photos of the smaller one, but s/he’s embarrassingly rotund and in need of a molt.
Pamphobeteus sp. magna
Pamphobeteus sp. ‘manabi’
It feels really good seeing tarantulas growing in sizes. Very satisfying indeed.
13 months and 6 moults later...
Why cant this speicies look the same as slings when adult?
So you can always start keeping it from a sling stage to cherish the moments.
