    IMG_4069.JPG How old would you guess a .25 inch Gramastola Rosea is? I bought it online but would love to know how old. I just adore the little thing

    Also how long does it take for them to be full grown?

    Looks bigger than 1/4" dls? at that size it's @ 8-14 months and will take another 4+ years to mature

    agreed, that's more like an inch DLS.
    No way to really tell age unless you know when it hatched or you raised it from the egg, to many variables to take into account.

    agree with these guys....there r a lot of thing that could change the growth rate of the little guy. But if it is a male 4 -5 years to reach maturity longer if it is a female.

    I say one year. I'm guessing, of course. But I think @sdsnybny is pretty close.
