Age depends on all sorts.
To give you an example.Of the slings of G. aureostriata that hatched out with us last year one is now 2" due to it being well fed etc. Mine are all only about 2-3 cms now. All from same sac. So you'd think they were from diff sacs and the bigger is older wouldnt you? It depends on temps and feeding I think so there is no way to tell! Rubbish explanation but hope you understand it lol!

I know what you mean, My Wifes brother has two of these and one is massive, and yet they are both of similar age, Siefer's leg span is about 6.5 inches front to back

Anywhere between 5 and 30 years. There's no way of being more specific :wink:

Cheers,

6.5" for a chile rose is a mighty legspan!
