    Just got my 4 E. sp. Yellow slings rehoused today and thought you all might want to see them. They are finally showing their adult colors and growing a bit. They have really changed even though they grow pretty slow and are still kinda small.

    When I got them -

    How long did it take them to get that size?

    I got them early in July of 2017 so two years and a few months.

    They were by far the smallest slings I've ever kept. They were easy to care for and pretty fun to own.

    Yeah, that would be great. I think the leggy one with lots of yellow (the last photo) is a male though I've not molt sexed any of them yet. My adult female is doing great as well.

    The males are distinctly leggy compared to females. As you know I've owned both. Like all Ts at what point this can be discerned is up in the air. For my male, he grew very fast, and was MM in about 1.5 yr I believe, lived a few years after too. It was easy to know his gender based on growth speed, but most importantly I had an AF female to compare :cool:
     
  11. Oh, wow, that's great work!

    Best part of owning slings is watching them grow!

    Well I was right. The leggy one is a male and seems to have matured the last molt. Here is a photo of the left overs from his sperm web and if you look close you can see his boxing gloves. I'll have to feed my MF up really good and try to pair them. :D
