My baby is a warrior! Do you see the size of that cricket?! Feeshly molted 10/19.
Looks like it's riding the cricket like a horse! Lol
Whaaa ....... It molted again?!!!
Yes she did lol! It was a period of 4 weeks between molts, these L parys are quick little growers :) How is Gomper doing?

Gomper is doing great but I won't be seeing the rapid growth you guys are seeing as my temps are a few degrees lower than yours. Plus I swear I got the runt of the litter haha. My temps are between 22-25c. My crickets are chirping away so it's hot enough for them to feel frisky lol but not quite hot enough for Gomper to molt on a monthly basis. I've had 1 molt since I had the little rascal back in August! Maybe when he hits 1 or 2" then the growth might speed up.
Also, he only eats 1x per week. My albos are feeding more often right now. I offer them all every 3 days but he refuses every other or sometimes 2 feeds in a row. I find the differences quite interesting

My wife's albo is eating up a storm! Since we had her (about 4 weeks now) she has eaten a dozen crickets and 4 Madagascar roaches (small size)! But yet my B. boehmi will only eat once every 2-3 weeks and she is at 2.75 inches, slow growers do lots of feeding refusals I have noticed, it's the faster growers like L. parahybana that eat until they are premolt but even mine have had their refusal days. I'm glad to hear Gomper is doing well, always like to check up on Gomper I'm a big fan :) My temps are low round these parts in NJ my secret is my Lasko room heater. No worries, my wife got the runt of a H.sp colombia litter lol, but she loves this little one. They are prolific webbers and they make these neat little trap doors in the ground to catch their prey. All T's have their moods, dispositions, and personalities which makes them even more fascinating and it shows that we have a God who is a personal Creator and makes us all unique, including His creatures :T:
