I have a huge female ornata that is pushing 8 1/2 inches just wondering What some of the biggest ones you have owned?

Nothing full size yet, but my fasciata is a little over 4". I look forward to the day my rufilata packs on the size, but she's only 3" now. Pathetic, yes, but I'm proud of her!

Thems some long legged boogers, I swear mine added an inch to her leg length last molt, from 4 1/2 to 5 1/2, but thats just a guestimate.

It was not the big girl. lol. The mother of the sling you bought was the one that decided she wanted to climb you {D Your like 6'5-6'6 so I think she thought you were a tree.

My regalis is somewhere in that neighborhood. Probably close to 8 1/2". She's a big girl. Next time I'm bangin around in her tank I'll try to get some pics and put 'em up.

8" mark

So how long does it take them to reach the 8" mark typically.

Not sure, I got her as a mature female. It's my only T I haven't gotten as a sling. Couldn't pass her up though, she was too good looking.

Good god some of those are as long as bird eaters! That's incredible for arboreal species, I hear that the Indian Ornamental can get over 9 inches!

I am not to sure a Regalis can get that big, but I know Rufilata can. I do have a few big Regalis, maybe 7.5" max though.

9" is most likely not gonna happen with a regalis. Mine is 8- 8 1/2 MAX. And that's huge. Most average 7 1/2 to 8" when they're maxed out.

9" is possibly the largest ever found, I'm sure I read something about it on some obscure website.
