I love M. robustum. That whole abdomen raised defensive posture thing they do is too cool.

Scott, how is her temperment? looks like you keep her a bit on the dry side? I have three adult females, when I first got them they were very skittish, I could not even open their enclosure (a plastic shoebox type enclosure) without them going beserk! I rehoused them into large kritter keepers with a place for them to hide and they calmed right down.

Temperment is pretty good. I've never had a problem with her snapping or kicking hairs. The area under the water dish is actually pretty moist. She tends to stay under the piece of corkbark where it's dry though.

mine is looking great also, and she spends 99.9% of the time in her fish LOL
I regularly dump her water dish and refill, so one end of her container is moist as well.
Mine does the abdomen raise as well, but mostly she just hides in the famous fish :D

Fear not, Gillian! I've found they're mostly bluff. ;)

And a beautiful robustum, Scott. One of my favorite species.

I have found mine will readily kick hairs if they feel the need to. none of the frantic brachy style of kicking either.....they use a slow gentle kicking that manages to raise clumps of hairs that float all over the place.
do you handle your robustums, Joy?

James: it would help if you read the thread before posting...;)
I think the temperament question was mentioned...

robustum is the perfect name for those beasts. They get so fat. I love it.
