Grammostola porteri 1.5 cm sling

5 months and 12 days still no molt. Why did I buy such a tiny sling again?
Little baby butt though. So cute. I've noticed with my reptiles and I've got baby snakes, they don't grow much at all in the first year. My slings are 3/4-in and I'm not expecting much growth in the first year. Being on the board, it's great to see the adults and they're gorgeous but I think these little ones are so cute.

Being a reptile keeper myself, I know exactly what you mean.
 
Thats a disparity alright. Still, I'm willing to wager in the next 6 months your kid will shed. I was worried about my 11 gram corn snake Bert because he grew so slowly. He didn't shed for months either. But between months 6 and 9 he started shedding. And his growth started too. He gained 7 grams in 6 months and then 9 grams in the following 3 months. Have you had her particular breed before?
