I have two WC females whom I've kept for a few years now. I've also had one male, now deceased. IME, the defensive tendencies of this species are much exaggerated. I found them slightly skittish (the male more so than the females), but none of them has ever attempted to bite even when handled. The male did the "spinning wheel of death" maneuver on me the first time I had to handle him (to mate him with one of my females), and he also urticated a little on this and and a few subsequent occasions, but he soon became accustomed to handling and gave no more trouble.Originally posted by cweg
I am thinking about getting one of these. Does anyone have experience raising this species. Temperature? Humidity? Defensiveness? Major burrowing?
Any feed back would be appreciated- cweg
Ok, what is it about Megaphobema s'lings that makes them hard to raise? Does this also apply to mesomelas? I really want to get one of those.Originally posted by Midwest Art
I've found the slings to be a bit more difficult to raise as well.
