Just got this girl. She is something very different from what I've had before - serious, not skittish, but conveys "I'll kill you if you come close" :) Enjoy!













And here's her new home

Vitaliy,

I hear you with them being serious and not skittish. The 2 slings I got from you do the same thing. They are always on the defense and they will absolutely come straight for you when mad. They dont seem to care how big the object in front of them are. Great T's though.

Umm, she's a little over 4" if I'm not mistaken. She hasn't molted since those pics but as soon as she does I'll post some new ones.

That's actually both cooling and heating system :) Copper tubing and a PC fan on top. It's connected to a water pump which will be submerged in warm or ice water.
