I've had an A. hentzi sling for almost a year, and no molt. It also ignores any food I offer. I know they grow pretty slowly, but is this normal?

Am I doing some thing wrong?

Your enclosure looks just fine. So does the tarantula. Its abdomen looks the proper size. Also LOL what is that water dish? A LEGO brick? That's hilarious. 10/10

"Pretty slowly" is a bit of an understatement. It looks fine :D

You are doing nothing wrong. It took 7 years for my Hentzi to hit 7cm DLS

@Moakmeister, yes that is a lego brick being used as a water dish. I got the idea from someone else here on the board.

I guess now I have an excuse to get more Ts;)
I'm so relieved! Thank you, guys!:kiss:
