    One female has dug to the bottom of a 32 oz deli and closed herself off, being 1 feeding after a molt... Thankfully the other female and the male are happy to pose for photos, and are hungry as can be!

    Just rehoused the other female and the male. He’s definitely way more skittish than the females, but just as beautiful.

    You wish :p I love these three to death, honestly probably the favorites of my collection. Also glad I got them when I did, seeing as I just saw them for $85 a piece :dead:

    Apparently 1 feeding was enough, because the female molted again, giving me an excuse to move her to a better enclosure. She’s joining her siblings in well furnished cubes with lots of sub!

    Well, on this lovely Valentine’s Day, it seems that I was wrong... and I have 3 females! :jawdrop:

    I’m over the moon but now this means I need to get males from somewhere...

    While I don't have any accompanying pictures this time, they've grown considerably and are still doing excellently. I mentioned it in another thread but I've had the strange experience of them blocking themselves off by mistake on several occasions due to their propensity to burrow nonstop and pile their substrate exceedingly high, to the lid of the enclosure even. While they've all been relatively surface active they are INCREDIBLE burrowers, I would consider them having the substrate needs of a fossorial from my experience with them so far, and they'll be getting that type of setup very soon.

    I'll be sure to update with pictures when they do :)

    My largest female got an upgrade yesterday, to a much larger enclosure with some live plants as well.
