BigJ, Congrats and good luck with the P ornata! Ime they are rather shy and retiring as slings. I've only had one "threat posture" so far from P. o. #2. Other than that they're almost friendly..........although I realize this will likely change as they mature. Terry
I have noticed that as well although i must say they are very beautiful T's and the OBT is pretty to. I like the color of orange that it is and that its a aggressive eater it took out a pinhead when i put it in its home lol.
I know the feeling lol i have a long wanted list as well the OBT was free so i figured why not they are pretty,tough,mean and it was a freebie lol. Ornata is one fast T though it telepoted to that pinhead
I know what you mean about teleporting P ornata. I had to be extra careful when opening their enclosures before they reached ~2.5" P. o. 4 gave me fits one evening after jumping from fairly high to the floor, then jumping from my hand several times after crawling onto during attempts to release it back into the enclosure.
Well teleporting T's certainly keep you on your feet lol my P.irminia named Flash. Gave me trouble during a cage change lol it took me like 20 minutes to get her back into her home lol. But yeah it didn't even see the T get the cricket lol i just moved and had it in its fangs lol. The OBT just attacked the cricket lol
You know who gained the most size so far molting my P.irminia is got very leggy and moves faster then it ever did. But yeah it seems it takes some T's a while to gain size its taken my LP a while to gain some size.
