      ManlyMan7, do you have any charts and stuff for your Nhandu chromatus? I got a 1-incher at the reptile show today and I'd like to see what I can expect in terms of growth.

      I do have 3 Nhandu chromatus slings that are sacmates. The biggest is to molt in the next day or so and will likely be just under 3". The other two are significanly smaller.

      I will try to get charts posted in the next week or so, but I am quite busy at the moment.

      Manly, would you say the growth rate is typical in most T's?
      This would be interesting to see the average growth of a species vs others, to find out the fastest growing T. Ive already started a spread sheet (rather poorly) on when I got them, feeding, molt, cage maintenance, ect. I never thought to record DLS and document growth.

      Not sure if I follow the first question. Are chromatus typical growth rate for a T? Yea, I would say so. My biggest girl is approaching 3" and I got her in October at 3/8". My Chaco was 5/8" when I got her a year before, and just over 3" bt the same time.

      Go look up the Typical Tarantula Temperaments thread I started a year or two ago. It has a LOT of Ts (over 100 species) and over 500 entries that catalogue people's ratings of many features (growth rates, biteyness, flickiness, urt hair potency, venom potency, skittishness, etc.).

      If I ever get help again or the motivation myself, I will revive that thread and project, especially now that I have more Ts and older Ts to add data for, and now that we have so very many new members since then.

      As for the fastest growing T, at this point, I would say A. geniculata gets the prize, at least in my estimation. I mean, my 3.5" female I got back late August is now over 7" (6 months!)
