    He must’ve been sneaking out and finding steroids without my permission - you know how they like to explore. :p 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. :troll:

    Mine has moulted 6 times since September 2017.

    This is mine. It moulted twice until now and grew 1/2", if at all. It's in premoult though (I hope :p), hasn't eaten in a month.

    November 2017 (about 3/4 inch)
    20171122_then.jpg

    February 2019 (about 1 1/4 inch)
    20190202_now.jpg

    There you have it: 2 moults in 15 months and a growth rate not even a glacier could compete with. :shifty:

    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. :)

    It feels really good seeing tarantulas growing in sizes. Very satisfying indeed.

    So you can always start keeping it from a sling stage to cherish the moments.
