I bought Whiskey my mature male P. Mur as a mature male cause I didn't think he would be bought by anybody for being matured and a male. He's actually one of my calmest Ts and it says a lot for being an OBT and comparing his sweetness to my Curly Hair (Brachypelma Albopilosum)
@l4nsky Thats the only time I have held him, I'm still horrified of him though, at repticons I've heard stories of their bites, The only time i bother him is opening his cage for maintenence/feeding. I love to observe him though.
I read the title of P. murinus and saw the hand, I had to look. You must have nerves made of steel wool and the grit of like 40 grit sand paper. I don't condone handling, especially with OW, but I must say you either go big or go home. 11/10
I almost crap myself when one of my 2" Pamphos slapped the side of his enclosure cause I looked at him wrong. Not to mention screaming when I fed my little 1" H. mac and it decided it wants to teleport to the top of the enclosure as soon as I open it. It really can take nerves of steel sometimes to be a T keeper.
