So I just got back from the taylor reptile expo and I baught the coolest T in my opinion EVER.
So I get it home take off the lid and it crawls right into my hand so I put my other hand infront of it so it can crawl to it and it decides to JUMP to my other hand, ( and I didnt jump, my girl did tho lol ) and keeps jumping from hand to hand untill I pull 1 hand away then it just chills. ohya ita a A.Metallica by the way. so far everytime I put my other hand in front of it it jumps to it and It makes me laugh everytime. This is 1 of the coolest pets ive ever had. I really hupe she stays like this.
I also got a G.Pulchra a male B.Smithi and put a deposit down on a P.Metallica ( dont ask how much please )

A.metallica are very jumpy,goofy fluffballs.IMHO,the most jumpy of the Avicularia. They are my favorite t,hands down.I am not a handling person,but when we HAD to,ours were a joy.The size is intimidating,though.One of our girls is a solid 7 inches when shes spread out.

this 1 is prolly a male he said hed be able to tell fo sho the next molt. Will they jump around in their enclosures too. cause if so Im not going to put it in a pokie setup. Ill put her in a 30 gallon tall so she has room to jump across and not just up. Will that work good ?

I keep all of our metallica females in vertical 10 gallon tanks.Works like a charm.The only "leaping" we notice these days is only done when hunting/catching prey.Last time I tong fed,I had a balled up,7 inch avic hanging from the end of my tongs after a 6 inch jump.our slings jump everywhere,though. Everytime I have to feed/mist,I have slings flying everywhere.
