Wow....my sling just molted, and for some reason, it's chosen to come out of it's burrow....
what a BEAUTY! Lightening fast, eats like a pig, and grows quickly... I just LOVE my Swifty freebie!

thanks! It was approx 1.25" before the molt, I'd say it's just shy of 2" or so now. They really gain in size each molt, at least when they are this small!

It's quite colourfull despite the "small" size...I like it :) Its something other than my 2" l. parahybanas. They only got a boring light gray colour :(

Yikes ! That green is awesome! Do they keep that color into adulthood?

I don't know for how long they keep their gray colour. Just know that i've seen pictures of adults and they were black with salmon pink coloured coxa, trocanter, patells and around the edge of the cephalothorax and some of the hairs all over their bodys. But I don't know if that goes for all l.parahybanas.
But your right...The green colour really is awsome:)

I had no idea the rufescens was so gorgeous.
That's another one added to the wish-list!

Oh, I was talking about the rufescens, whether it keeps the green into adulthood or not. I know what adult parahybanas look like.

I noticed to late that it was not a question for me :)
