      We could see that it had eaten some of its meal this morning, so that was encouraging.

      I don't know how long it will take to grow to full size, but I have some plexi to build a new tank for it.

      Also, how do you sex these guys?
      It's hard to say when they will hit adult size. They all seem to grow at different rates. I have some I bought as hatchlings that have doubled their size in 6 months. Others look like they have barely grown at all. As far as sexing you have to look for pores. Males will have them,females won't. This is a decent guide to show how to sex them.

      P.S. Love the orange yours has. I have one that's almost just like that.

      Thanks. That helps.

      This one is growing (I think), but still quite small.

      Having seen larger adults of late, I am really digging these.

      And this one can get quite dark orange when it wants to. And its belly gets blotched.

      Yeah I like my adults. They are usually less jumpy and flighty. I have one baby that is just...spastic. The second I open his enclosure he is off and running. Misting and feeding him is always fun lol.

      It is amazing how different they look fired compared to unfired.

      Mine definitely isn't spastic, but is sluggish to get out. And after holding if for a bit, it starts to leap from hand to hand or hand to chest.

      Yeah mine do the leaping from hand to chest. They want to get as high up as they can. I only have that one that's super spastic. It's also my smallest. I REALLY hope it calms down as it gets bigger.
