ok I got my little babies in today
1 costa rican tiger rump
1 costa rican red
1 usumbara baboon

I almost lost the usumbara for as small as it is its fast!!!
It took my about 10 min. to catch it.
my question is if I powerfeed them how often should they molt there all less than the size of a dime right now. and can you tell a color difference before a molt. and any pictures or info on small slings would be helpfull thanks

I think alot of us here tend to feed our slings more than the adults. I think its not only the impatience of waiting for the T to mature, but also the fact that you want a nice, healthy T, and a good, varied diet as a sling is a good way to send your T off into the adult world nice and healthy!

molting will speed up, but... to me, theres a fine line between feeding, overfeeding, and powerfeeding. I'm not really into powerfeeding ("stacking" as it were).

I like to feed my slings a little bit more than i normall would.

gives them a good start in life (healthy and varied diets can never be wrong! =D )
good luck!

and check over the past 3 weeks on the list. I know there were 2 or 3 "SLING 101" posts with pics and housing info...

do a search!
peace
