i have 10 curly slings i got from the same eggsack (Holley) and they are growing at differrent rates. I keep them all at the same temp. and feed them all the same at the same intervals with equal amounts of food. there are some that are noticeably larger than others......is it a waaaay off guess to think that these might be males??
dont males mature quicker therefore getting larger faster??
am i waaay off here folks??:?

I think that is correct Kosh. IMO
I bought 5 P. murinus slings from Tarantulakeeper and picked 3 smaller and 2 larger ones. Thinking the males will grow faster than the females so would be larger. I'll know for sure in a year or so.

I was wondering that myself, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see, or maybe someone that raises lots of slings can give us a guess.
some of mine are quite a bit larger than the others, but then, some of them eat better and more often too....
The only constant is they are kept in the same type vials, same substrate, and same temp.
