Charinus Pescotti juvi female...?

I think the shape of the pedipalps indicates this is a female but I never get to observe her long enough. I've had her for 11 months and she has never molted, are amblypygids like really slow growing?
I had mine for nearly two years and it only molted twice. In fact after I got it there was such a long period before it molted that there was i time I thought it was already mature if it wasn’t molting. They’re much slower growing than most true spiders like huntsmans
 
@RezonantVoid mine was the same. Never saw it catch prey, very sensitive to vibrations and light and every time I almost saw it catch prey I looked away for a second and it’d grabbed it. I just gave it small pre killed crickets as it kept getting spooked by live ones and refused to eat
 
Yeah they're really slow growing. Charinus tend to be small though, so this could be an adult (or at least mature).
