Okay so I just noticed that one of the B. emilia slings i bought is missing a leg:eek: it's only about .25" and I was wondering how long or how many molts will it take for it to grow back the missing leg?????:confused:

Depending on when she lost it two molts should do it, three if she lost it to close to the next molt. I had an emilia sling last fall that was missing 4 legs and a palp. She ate prekilled and three molts later you could not tell she ever was missing a leg.
One leg should be easy for her. I still to this day find it amazing they can do that.
