I've got 3 Acanthogonatus spp. (2x francki and one pissii) that I've had since early December. They are exceedingly small slings. One is probably .5cm, with the others at maybe 1 and 1.5cm

All of them look healthy, they are eating pre-killed prey (mealworms pieces or crickets) and have nice full rumps. However, neither has molted or grown in the slightest.

Just how slow do these grow?

I've heard these guys are pretty slow growing, though I've never kept them and have no first hand experience. I'd think that at that size they'd grow a little faster, but I'm sure it's all relative for mygalomorphs.

Soooo, after making this post I COME OUT TO FIND 2 OF THEM HAVE MOLTED!!!! The smallest one still hasn't, but again, it has a well sized rump and has been feeding like the others.

... never mind then.

Fantastic, glad to hear they were listening and decided to molt! ;)
