darlingi

C. darlingi...freshly re housed.
Digging these girls up is far more work than wrangling them into a catch cup :rolleyes: Although kudos to you @cold blood, she's not dirty at all. Last time I rehoused my girl, she ended up looking like a Tough Mudder contestant.
 
Look at that chubby girl. Rehousing them is fun isn't it? The treasure hunt, the digging, the epic battle, and then mine normally come out of the catch cup willingly, flip me off, and head for cover. Haha
 
@EulersK

Didn't even have to dig her up. Used a thicker stick and expanded the burrow with it, hit the bottom and slowly reduced her space with the stick, she walked out, I blocked with the stick so she couldn't return (she won the first time), then used the top of the stick to user her down to her new home.

I will say, darling and to a lesser extent, marshalli have proven to be the toughest species I have ever packed for shipping. A darling easily holds the length record in my house....I think it took like 40 min....damn thing was only like 2.75".

@Grimmdreadly yep;) pretty much spot on;)
