I agree with him it will turn black so don't worry too much, some pulchras just have different degrees on when they are going to turn black. Most of my pulchras usually turn fully black when they reach 2". Probobly your has not molted for a long time that's why its color is kinda dullMine turned that jet black color when it got to 4" Before that it just wasn't the black I was expecting. Thats probably what you are experiencing. It'll turn black for sure.
My fingers are crossed. I would hate to find out I got something else for the price I paid. She was a German import, so it is very possible.DrJ, No problem whatsoever on the mistake. I though it was funny!
Scool, I only keep scant notes in my molt chart but I distinctly remember one individual being more brownish from right after the molt until the next. I don't know what caused this as it was already black during the period before that molt. With such a long period between molts of adult pulchra, I'll bet your female is only a bit faded and will be a jet black beauty after her next.
Sounds about right. Mine all turned around the 2"-2.5" mark. I have a couple others on the verge with the next molt, which will put them at 2.5"They start getting jet black around 2.5" I dont have experience , but i have seen multiple reports and photo's . When slings , they are just brown I want one !
Hey D!Sounds about right. Mine all turned around the 2"-2.5" mark. I have a couple others on the verge with the next molt, which will put them at 2.5"
I did not think he was all that brown. Not quite s stunning as he is now. He is out, I will have to see if he will let me get a shot.Hey D!
That boy I sold ya was very brown and about 3.5" I guess until it molted and blammo!!!! BLACK!
Jeannie got my other one and was the same size and just as brown at 3.5. I'm waiting to hear how black he got with her on the next molt.
