I have searched for this several times and come up with a ton of price lists and photos, but no answers to my questions. I would like to know how you can tell if an irminia is mature. I have one that is about 4 inches or so at the moment and as skinny and lanky it is, I would guess it's a male (I know I know, the exuvium was destroyed during the last molt and I have nothing else to go on.) Do the males have hooks? I notice it doesn't hide anymore since it molted unless I spook it. I have kept these before but I don't know much about the differences in the sexes, sizes, ages, stuff like that. Any input would be great. Like I say, the keeping aspect I already have a good idea about. I'm just wondering about the ultimate molts and the growth rates and stuff. Thanks for the help up front.
