    Hey all,
    I've been moaning about the whole thing for a few days now, but I finally handled Peso successfuly for the first time. It was such a rush. I didn't do it for very long, and by the end my hand was shaking quite a bit. If the species was even the slightest bit defensive, I probably would've been hit. Luckily Peso's a G.Pulchra. Hopefully I can quell my excitement next time, and keep my hand a little steadier.
    Most of you would probably categorize the whole thing as average, but this was my first time handling any T, so give me some attention so I feel all proud of myself.

    Hey. You Should be proud of yourself.

    It takes a bit to quell a personal fear or aversion or even a slight twang of trepidition and go ahead and do something one has been wanting too.

    Way to Go!

    And ya know what?

    No matter How often I hold ours I get a little quakey.


    A tindge of slight fear for the " what if's"

    It may go away.
    It may not.

    But a little adrenaline is good for me.

    I hope that excitment Never goes away.

    You Dun did great!

    Cool:) it's not a bad thing to keep handling sessions kind of short anyhow. Congrats!

    Well, you certainly do deserve a pat on the back for that effort, because, no matter what, a T is NOT a domesticated creature & handling is always an experience & ALWAYS exciting!:D
