I also have a itsy bitsy teeny weeny E. campestratus sling......barely 1/4" that just molted yesterday. I do hope it will be more laid back than the other two that I have. One of which is an adult female & the other is sub-adult female. Both are very very skittish & prone to bolt & run whenever cage maintenance is done or they are being fed. The sub-adult even came charging one day.......I didn't keep my hand in to find out whether its intentions were friendly or not.
I'm always afraid of one or the other getting out while cleaning the water dish, etc etc. The only thing I can think of is that they were WC. Hopefully the sling will be a bit different in temperament & act more like the general consensus that they are docile.
BTW.......when my sling molted......the colors are now.....well.....the best way I can put it.......is that it looks to be a clear greyish color......whereas before, it had a bit of a tan color to it with a darker rump.
Ohh.....edited to add.....the new size could be almost 1/2" now....still hard to tell as it is somewhat burrowed in its vial. Can only peek in from the side.
Pretty old thread, but they’re generally pretty slow growers. And it largely depends on many facts, take a read through this thread:My little pzb sling molted for the first time since I got it a week ago and I was so upset as I just just missed it, I checked on hom before supper and after we ate there was the little skin.
Mine looks exactly the way you describing yours.
I want to know though, how often does our pzb slings usually molt?
Mine is basicaly the same. Slow as they come. Only thing I have that might grow this slow is B emilia.I've had mine for a year. When I bought it it was 3/8" and now it is just under 1 1/4". Compared to my other slings, that's pretty slow growth, and I've heard from others that Eupalaestrus species tend to grow slowly.
Always hilarious when people answer or comment on peoples quotes that are a decade old and the person hasn't been logged on for years.Mine is basicaly the same. Slow as they come. Only thing I have that might grow this slow is B emilia.
Yeah I was responding to Irma’s comment not the ones from 15 years ago lmaoAlways hilarious when people answer or comment on peoples quotes that are a decade old and the person hasn't been logged on for years.
