Here's my laeta after it's moult yesterday:

This one is bother or sister to Chris' A. laeta, but it's had roughly half the number of moults it seems. This is it's second moult with me and boy has it grown! I severely underestimated it's new size yesterday, it stretched out for me and it's a 3.5cm leg-span now up from about 2cm last moult. These pics don't show it so well, but it's now got a tiny patch of red colouration coming through on its abdomen! You can almost make it out in a few of these pics.











My P. irminia and T. violaceus also moulted today and yesterday respectively, so I may have pics of them up soon too!

A man can own 2 taps, can he not? Anyway, this one looks to be a little boy. Well I say that, after that last moult he's more or less doubled in size and is huge. Well, maybe pushing 3" at a stretch.

Yeah I think its 4, if not definitely 3.... Mine didnt seem to have a big growth stint till the last moult at a guess I'd say its approaching the 2" mark now, just starting to show gold colours on the carapace :)

Considering how small they were when we got them I doubt it's been 3 moults to reach 2".

Unusual for an avic, my minatrix has moulted about 4 times since I've had it, maybe 5 times... still under and inch. :roll:

Yeah but I believe A.minitrix stay quite small anyway???

I mentioned yesterday on that Avic ID thread I bought A.braunshauseni & A.azuraklaasi slings both at the same time, both fed and kept the same although the A.braunshauseni is at least 1cm+ bigger than the A.azuraklaasi....

They do, but it's no excuse for such slow growth in my eyes... Taps stay small and they grow like weeds!
