I bought the avic September 10 2020 and to this day they are still slings. Almost a year later. Same thing with the versicolor which I bought slightly before the avics. All my other slings look like juveniles now and several of those started out much smaller than the avics and versicolor when I bought them.

That's unusual but not impossible. How many times have they molted in your care?

Can you describe your husbandry, share a few pics of your enclosures? What and how often are you feeding them?

Sounds about right...only 8 months. Takes about a year to reach 2" with a 3/4" sling, if your conditions are right. You can try uping the heat a little and feed them larger meals less often. Avics are a medium to slow growth species.

I would agree on the Avic but beg to differ for the Caribbean. I have 3 individuals from 2 different breeders and all 3 have been growing at a fairly fast pace.
