I am hoping this guy molts soon. I feel like it is refusing food, but you never can actually tell at this size. Does it look like it is in pre-molt to you all who have kept these as slings?
Does it look like it is in pre-molt
Your sling isn't in pre - molt yet, @Stormsky sling is in pre-molt, you can see the dark abdomen, which means it's definitely in pre-molt unlike yours, hope this helps.Mine is about the same size as yours and is definitely currently in pre-molt.
Not to me. Sam both genders can get much fatter at that size, and not molt for or eat for over 3+ months.I am hoping this guy molts soon. I feel like it is refusing food, but you never can actually tell at this size. Does it look like it is in pre-molt to you all who have kept these as slings?
What the hell do you feed them? :wideyed: Or do you have any other secrets why your slings moult so often?
Seems they slow right down once they hit 1", got mine as a 3/4" sling in July and it moulted in September and November, hasn't refused a meal yet, little bugger attacks the water dish when I fill it up lol.I got my 1" sling at the beginning of November last year and there's not even a hint it might moult any time soon...
Haha, they do seem to molt freakishly often - every 5 weeks give or take a couple days. I don’t think I have any secrets unfortunately. I feed them mealworm chunks twice a week and have kept the temperature around 25C during the day and in the lower 20s at night.
I have my sling in this sterilite-like enclosure:Just curious, what size enclosure do you have yours in? I moved one of mine into a bigger container a while ago, and now he’s falling behind with eating because he’s burrowed down to the bottom and doesn’t seem to come up for food. I miss the little guy.
A little under 4"x3"x2.5".It's roughly 9,5x7x6 cm (sorry, can't tell inch sizes right now ).
