Does anyone have any notes on the growth rate of A. chacoana?
Had it about 5 or 6 months - it's still under 1". No sign of molt or pre-molt and has been well-fed.They are supposed to be fast growers, how long you had yours for Becca and how big is it?
I'd say it will really pick up after you have it for year, a few buddies of mine who had exclusively parahybanas and genics thought it was kinda slow for the first year as they got all of theirs at .5-.75 slings, after the 1inch mark they noticed more growth and much faster, once it was at 2inches or so it was off and running, i hope the same goes for yours, keep us updated.Had it about 5 or 6 months - it's still under 1". No sign of molt or pre-molt and has been well-fed.
I'm never in a rush when it comes to them molting, but thought it was odd that this species was taking longer than I thought it would take.
Thanks - this is the kind of info I'm looking for.I have had my girl since 2004. It grew from 1.25" to 4.25". So there not really fast growers but not slow either
I'm not sure too, i guess i must of thrown you off when i said my buddies kept them and L. parahybanas...no way did I mean the parahybana to be included with the claims only the genics, sorry..Thanks - this is the kind of info I'm looking for.
@Ando55 - I'm not sure how L. parahybana fits into this. I've thought previously that this species was slower growing than A. geniculata, but wasn't certain.
Not nearly as voracious feeders as I had expected.
I've also found A. insubtilis to be medium growing at best.ive got exactly same experience with my A.insubtilis sling.My A.bicoloratum sling is growing faster
