1000 P. barbatus here runs between 11-12g depending. On comparisons I'm not sure what you are asking for exactly, but my HLs are normally recorded for weight after defecation and before feeding for the day. They are also recorded after fasting for 1-2 weeks, just before hibernation, and recorded occasionally during hibernation. Last year my heaviest solare was over 90g upon going down( about 97g if I recall, I don't have the notes in front of me for last year ). There were two more adults, one weighed in the 70s and the other in the high 60s. I had recently received them from a collector in WA. and they had only been here a couple of months. He was feeding them small pogos from WA, and was not getting enough for them. This year they are both above 70g.

My youngest solare is a 2 year old female, and she is nearing 40g. I'm away from my own computer and don't have the exact weights now, but I just weighed them for panacur treatment last week so I recall the ballpark figure I used to dose them.

I have a recent platyrhinos calidiarum rescue who is the best barbatus eater of all my platyrhinos, and he weighs in the mid 30s. Since he is pretty good size at over 3" SVL, I expect him to top near or over 40g before long.
