Freshly molted
My suspect male P. auratus just molted a couple of hours ago. First molt in my possession. I will have to wait a bit to pull its molt since it is standing on it presently.
Handsome fellow you have there. I'm not familiar with this genus, what's their temperament like?

They are super aggressive eaters and I have never seen mine decline a meal unless in premolt. They are very quick and some can be defensive. Mine like to charge the water dish as I am pouring the water. I have never seen a threat pose however and have not had any flick hairs. Very fun and active genus. I would not consider it a beginner T just due to its quick/skittish reactions.
