I am curious about the subject of the T's becoming "mature" males or females. I am guessing this is when they can mate....but does this also signal the end cycle for the male species? They molt and grow til they "mature" then the molting slows to near nothing. Is this is when they've reached the later end of their timeline? Does the T's value go down if you want to purchase a T who has matured six months earlier?

Just curious....:?

please use search in the future.
Females continue to molt after they mature. Males technically do, but they mostly die before them because something else eats them or they get too weak.
No one buys a mature male for a pet because it is literally dying. 6 months is getting a bit old for a mature male, especially for some species like Avicularia who lose fertility rapidly after maturing (males). After males mature they are usually sold or borrowed for breeding.
