    With tail uncurled, from head to tail, about 2.5". Wonder how massive she'll be after her final molt, she already seems a bit cramped in her 32oz. container. I'm power feeding her, need her to molt quick before the male dies.

    Warm her up! They grow/mature faster when it's warmer.

    Though, in souther Cali, you probably don't have to worry about that....It's just the New Yorker in me talking...
