    hi, there is something that is puzzling me about my p. murinus, when i first got it, it would use threat displays and i couldn't get anywhere near it, but now i can pick it up freely and it doesn't seem to mind, it runs if it feels threatend instead of a threat display, does anyone know the reason for this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Shadow

    Luck.
    Don't count on it.
    Read bite reports.
    Please.

    i've read bite reports about them, im just worried that something is wrong with it, he eats normal, but no threat displays what so ever, it's a sub adult

    He's lulling you into a false sense of security...
    He knows you're bigger than he is; so he's pulling the old "hey buddy, hey pal" thing on ya. ;)
    He's plotting.......

    Seriously though...some people actually DO handle their obt's....

    It is NOT recommended, however. If you have read the bite reports, then please remember what you read. Keep away from others when you are free handling this hot sp.

    Good luck. It doesn't sound like anything is wrong with him.
    Maybe he's like the elf who wanted to be a dentist and he doesn't realize he's supposed to be a jerk? :)
