Why would you handle any T just after it molts? They're at their most fragile at that time. P. murinus also tend to be more inclined to bolt than bite until they're about 3", when they start getting that trademark 'tude.
That's also a fat OBT for having just molted lmao. Must have been big as a house before. Pretty T, please be careful with it.
I just payed for the facepalm rractior and can't even use it in the gallery!
In all seriousness though, I 1000% agree with @Arachnophoric . After seeing your gallery uploads I can tell you are quite a knowledgeable and respectable keeper but handling ANY T after its just molted, ESPECIALLY an OBT, is just gonna send the wrong messages to new keepers. I'm honestly not trying to come across as angry or anything, but I just think this is a little irresponsible. The bottom line is they're your T's, but think about what's best for them
Sorry for the wrong message but precautions are taken. I did not touch it as immediately after molting. About 2 days later. In her normal mode, she would be very defensive and near impossible to hold. Therefore, on a flip side, it is safer for both of us to handle her ( just place on the hand ) in her post molt. I do not believe in rearing Ts and afraid of holding it at all. Examining the whole life of a Ts, there is no such a thing as a perfect time to handle a Ts, especially with an Old World.
