Hey Scott, I am quite seriously considering picking one of these up in the next two weeks. What are they like temperment wise, and what kind of living requirements do they have? I've not been able to find a good caresheet for one yet.

answer for conipto...

Temper wise they are pretty ballistic as in they really don't mind biting. Care wise keep them on the moist but not wet side. Pretty much as long as a water dish is present and full they do fine.

And by the way nice pics as usual Scott.

Bought it on 3/30/2002 at 1 3/4 inches

Molted: Exuvia Size

04/28: 2 /14 Inches
06/08: 3 1/8
08/30: 3 7/8 Inches
11/16: Unknown

Mine just kinda sits in the corner. Room temps (in the 70's) and I keep it on the moist side, soaking a corner of the substrate straight down so it soaks the substrate from underneath. I haven't really seen any signs of aggression from mine. It wasn't cooperating when I wanted to take those pics yesterday, so I broke out the brush and nudged it a bit so it would stretch out. No threat display, no hair kicking, no nothing actually. I was pretty surprised to be honest with you as I've always heard that they were pretty easily disturbed....

Scott

BTW, Thanks Phil :)

I have a couple of them and mine pretty much sit in the corner as well. I have tried( unsuccessfully) to get a good photo of mine. As a result of the failed photo shoot, I can attest to their fast times in the 4 meter dash. ;)
