That's great PTG! I'm stoked for ya. They're great little pedes man. I have 4 myself ranging from about 3" up to about 6". They're pretty mellow too for the most part. I've lately been considering attempting to handle one pretty soon. I was testing one out with a paintbrush this evening. I was pretty much petting it with the brush and stayed pretty calm considering. It did hiss a little and eventually just burrowed. I'm still not sure though. With my luck I'll be the one to discover that Feather Tail venom is the worst known to man. LOL!
