If you look closely in the pic the dead cricket I had dropped in before I realized she'd molted is actually on her molting mat!

I'd say right around an inch. She was barely a quarter inch when I got her. She actually scared the crap out on me once because she got under the lip of the deli container! I can't believe how big she's gotten so fast!

I thought it was funny that when I picked up her container when I went to feeding everyone I thought I had picked up my B. vagans sling by mistake...I didn't recognize her as she had more than doubled in size.

I know! I can't wait til my Ginny gets a bit more sizable. She's already got so much attitude. :)
Its great to watch them grow. My first baby was a genic and she grew massive in no time. She had a lovely nature and Pirate really reminds me of her (her name was Harley queen.) It sounds like Ginnie has that bold nature too. Bandit is great but a bit timid, he goes in one of his huts when I take his lid off. I think Kenny summed them up when he said "they swagger.'

My wee Ginny did it again! She's looking very nice. I hope to have the hubby take some pics later with his nice camera.

My L. vio male molted too this week.. I haven't actually seen him yet, just the skin he tossed out of his "volcano" he has made in this enclosure. I actually haven't seen him since I put in him there. I guess he didn't get the memo that he is supposed to be arboreal.
