    Wow. Seeing this post made me chuckle. How things can change with time...

    My P. sazimai are both highly defensive now. They threat pose their food, they threat pose me filling their water dish, etc.

  2. I usually keep mine with relatively high humidity, towards the lower ends of my shelves. They're skittish as all hell, and they've molted maybe 3 or 4 times since I got them back in December of 2018, where they were 2i. This is one now, that bolted onto my hand after I tried to most the wall of the enclosure:

    My sazimai always tends to be aggressive. Before the latest molt, she would give me a threat posture all the time but never run, similarily to P. murinus :p Now, with a body length of over 5cm she also usually attacks everything that moves near her but now she plays it more defensive. She usually attacks, then takes a few steps back while being headed towards the 'opponent' and never gives a threat posture even if I want her to do it. Every sazimai is different :p
