I've managed to rehouse my nice and easy slings , and a few small Juv slings , six weeks ago I got a Pamphobeteus Purple Bloom , I'd only originally gone to buy a G Pulchra , but the gent I got him wanted to get rid of him as he had a child with ADHD , anyway today my daughter was here and rehoused him for me , I started of but chickened out when he / she decided to sink their fangs in the paint brush I was using , so in future I'm just going to keep/ and rehouse the beginner Ts on my own . Can't blame the little guy really , I'd be the same if I was in my hide fast asleep and had a rude awakening ! I'm confident to feed and do his water , but that's about it , unless his in his hide .

Not sure what the purple bloom is...machala perhaps....how big is it? Is it mature? Post pics...Pamphs are the best.

Mmhmm..... this is why we use paint brushes. The T can bite those bristles all it wants, it won't hurt, and I can be entertained by it:p

A defensive T is menacing if you're not used to it. Practice makes perfect:)

Here as promised is a picture of my Pamphobeteus Purple Bloom , very surprised that he /she is not clinging on to the sides due to be rehoused and the new substrate!

That's a Pamphobeteous Platyomus, you'll get used to the aggression, just expect it every time, and when nothing happens you'll be in total control, congratulations on a lovely sp.

Thank you . It did frighten me , but I have no fear ( well I'm always aware of what he could do ) when it comes to feeding and water changes . I'm also aware of why he did it !
