Seriously? 3 moults in 2 years and what do I get? This is the first male I'm kinda upset about... I had dearly wished it was a girl. :( Finding a girl for him when he matures will be next to impossible. What a pity!
Aww no, I feel for you! He does look lovely though, and you still have some time with him (maybe quite a lot considering their molt cycles ).
I almost wanted to cry when my unsexed chilensis was suddenly a mature male, haha. I guess whispering to him about your little one having molted worked all too well
I feel ya - I had four spiderlings and every single one of them ended up male. It is very disappointing. Fortunately, one of our dealers did import some sexed females and I paid a huge amount for mine. Three mature males + two mature females = NO egg sac last year and all my breeding hopes are being placed on my one remaining freshly matured male. I even bought an incubator to cool them. If this doesn't work, I am going to just give up on this whole breeding thing.
@VanessaS Oh gosh! That's really bad luck. I keep my fingers crossed for your last male!
I also had hoped to breed this species, but now, I'm not so sure anymore. I mean I could get slings. There's actually someone here in Germany selling slings right now, but I doubt I've got the stomach to wait another 5 or 10 years.
I guess I'll be concentrating my breeding efforts on my dart frogs for now as it seems they could actually be a boy and a girl.
