was at the pet store and they have a g. rosea that is huge. couldnt really measure it but was well over 6 inch's. was very tempted to buy her although i have 8 now. i may go back tomorrow and see if they will let me measure her.
has anyone ever seen one that big? i know she was bigger and bulkier than my mature h. gigus. or is there one that looks close enough to pass for a g. rosea that gets well over 6 inch's.

Over 6"? Thats a mutant. Id get her just for that factor lol.........now a days in pet stores that a mutant is what I mean..... lately I have noticed the g roseas in pet stores are getting smaller and smaller..... which is not so good because that means they are pulling from the wild smaller and smaller because they cant find bigger............. that spells trouble in the future. :8o

i've seen roseas that big once or twice (size also depends on location), but usually, very big specimen are very old. so you might be getting a t that will not live very long... though with a rosea, that could still mean 5-10 years;).

i really have enough rosea's now so i probably wont buy her. just never knew they could get that big. the only mature female i have now is only about 3.5 inch's. i kept 7 of her offsping so i just wonder if they will be small also, guess time will tell. they are just under 2 years old so i have a bit to wait and see.

How much are they asking for her?

And I thought my girl was big. She was bought on 10-1-99 as a spiderling.

My female is around 6 1/4 inches and grew about 1/2 last molt. She still might have more size in her after a few more molts but I can't imagine she'll get much bigger. At 15 bucks, I'd grab her.

I've paid $15 just to look at a mutant, let alone own one... I love my FREAKS !

I'd pick it up ! That's better than seeing a seven legged calf, and a pickeled punk anyday !
