I am curious to see what other Melleri owners have to say about this topic. My largest Melleri, Macumba, sheds maybe 2 to 3 times a year and has done so for the last 2 years(I've had him for 4 years and some change). I'm not starting this thread out of stress or concern, Macumba is happy and healthy...it's more to satisfy a curiosity. I know it's common sense that as the amount of growth rate slows, so does the shedding....but like I said, he has done this for years and within those years, he has grown substantially. 200 grams or more. So, if anyone with Melleri experience would like to chime in, I would love to hear about your own experiences.
