    That is a beautiful H gigas.
    Just curious, how much substrate do you have in there.
    These guys LOVE to burrow and need fairly deep substrate.
    I would say at least 6 to 8", possibly more.

    Ok cool.
    These guys build pretty awsome burrows. I started a burrow for mine right along the side of the tank and she made a cool home out of it plus I got to see her often.:)
    I love the way these guys look.

    Yeh they get a very nice orange color.
    In fact at first I thought I had a king baboon till it molted.
    Yours looks like it molted not too long ago.
    It's pretty cool to see them go thru the color change.
