Hey I have been reading a little bit about them on some websites and I have been getting some mixed answers on their size. Like I have read 11 inches, and i have also read that the top out at 9 inches. So how big is your bigest lasiodora parahybana? Any 11 inchers out there!?:eek:

Well, it depends how you measure, and how full of poop you are! Some here will s t r e t c h i t o u t to fill the poop meter instead of getting a good measurement... C what I mean? ;)

Mine is 7.5" relaxed.. If I stretch her out.. I bet she would hit 8"+..

Took this two years ago and he's still the same size.



My hands are really big, so I'd put him at just over 10 inches.

Maybe up the feeding regime from micros to large crickets....

That plus higher temps (24-27°C) should make it get a little bigger......
I had a female P. cambridgei go from 1" to 5" in the frame of a year in similar conditions. Well, he's a male anyway. I'm not in a hurry to get him to maturity. Male L. parahybana aren't very in demand, I'd imagine.
