Hey,

how can I know my female P. cavimanus is adult? I want to breed her with my male.
She has a size of 4,7 cm without chelicerae and metasoma and weighs 8 g.

From P. imperator I heard that they seem to be adult when the telson color changes after a molt from yellow/white to red/brown. I never saw it myself because I bought my emps as adults and my own breed is still too small and obviously not adult :) Is that the same with P. cavimanus.

I would say that she hasn't reached adult size yet, also because the male is slightly bigger than her and from what I know the cavimanus females are supposed to be bigger than the males.

What do you think?

Regards,
Chris
