Rep: gritcracker is an unknown quantity at this point
Default I have babies!

I have babies, they are about a month old and started growing their front legs. As far as I can tell I have leucistic, albino, golden and wildtype, or a variation of the 4.

I am wondering the timeline when they will be ready to sell, I know when they get to be about 2 to 2 and a half inches with front and back legs, but I have so many! I am just curious how long it took everyone else's babies to grow up.

Also, if anyone wants one, I would like to start selling them if ethically possible, let me know!

Default Re: I have babies!

Depends who you are selling to. If you are selling to other enthusiasts you can usually sell them earlier, but pet stores want them a little bigger and more robust. An inch per month is about the most growth you can expect.

I usually sell mine at 3 months/3" to members here and other private citizens, 4 months/4" to pet shops.
