Hello. I bought a baby b.boehmei about 4 months ago. The seller told me it was around 6-8 months old. When I got it it was about 0.8 cm. Today, 3-4 months later it’s about 1cm.
so I have other tarantulas, for example a B.smithi that was about 1-1.5 years when I got him. He was about 7-9 cm back then.
Why is my baby boehmei growing so slowly? He molded 2 times during this 4 month period. Is this normal? Could it be something else and not a boehmei?

Brachypelma are extremely slow growing. They mature around 7 years or longer.
