Follows through with excellent communication. MM healthy & energized
Originally, I was to purchase Teal’s maculata MM outright. Although she’d disappeared for a few weeks, I’d learned that this time was spend assisting her community, after the outbreak of wildfires. This may not have so little relevance here. That’s character.
Much had changed in that time, outside her urging that the male be taken off the shelf to meet his potential. She was clearly determined. By this time, I could only offer a trade, to which she was agreeable.
However, the subfusca's disposition and timely molt cycle led to some complications (on top of her leaving town). The window of day(s) then became hours. Due to great communication through pm and text, we were able to see it through.
Packing was perfect. Appreciated the little guy’s enthusiasm, when he jack in the boxed me. And little guys tend to perform just as well, if not better IME. African males especially, seem to vary greatly on ultimate sizes. He’s a confident one and certainly no calceatum as received from previous seller. No doubt he’ll get the job done though. Thanks Teal.
