Just got a 3" female Aphonopelma chalcodes yesterday that still has her juvenile colors. How many more molts until she starts getting her blondish coloration? Right now she looks like a little brown tarantula.

Mine is 3.75 inches and shows it, so you probably don't have that much more to go.

They get their coloration around 3.5-3.75 inches from what I've seen and yeah they're VERY slow growers like all Aphonopelma.

Lord have mercy, what have I done? Haha :rofl:. Glad I have her, we get to grow together. Probably will be in my life for a very long time.

Oh yeah they're long lived even the males live quite a while because they grow so slowly, they are a great species though.
