That's one stunning lady you have there. I look at the adult pictures and look at my little lady and I can't wait to see her as colourful as that - truly awesome :clap:

is 1.2" still black color ?

im wondering what size does p.metalica starting turn blue ?
I have measured it at approx this size, it is at least an inch... but yea it was a dull grey colour with darker grey markings and slightly blue hairs, but it almost looked transparent.

From the past 2 days it has gone almost jet black, i'll get some pics of it later to post.

This is my first venture into the genus so I am no expert on them, I would assume it will get its colours in the next molt-2 molts.

the jet black colour means the sling is going to molting right ?

i have one at home about 1.5 - 2 cm and the colour exactly what you have mentioned above dull grey colour with darker grey markings and have no blue hairs yet.

is your p.metallica like hiding rather than hang out in the log ?

It sits on the side of the vial mostly or underneath the web, but it has webbed the flooring and little moss strands to make a fortification.

Now it is sitting on top of this, and yes the jet black colour is indicative of an imminent molt, especially on the legs.
