Well, I might have been lucky with my non-murinus specimens of the genus, but I have yet to see something unexpected behaviour-wise from my lugardi and chordatus´ . Sure, they are defensive as expected from an OW and they will always stand up for a fight when the time comes for a rehouse, but I would not say that they are that much more difficult to rehouse than a Ceratogyrus. At least that´s my experience with them.Yep all localities of murinus are prone to bolting but there is a couple that will stand and fight regularly though. Again with localities there has been a couple of localities seen in the wild living like semi-arboreal ie. murinus Tete and Kenya.
I am not saying to stay away from the genus but almost every dodgy situations I have had when it comes to Africans has been with some Pterinochilus lugardi and chordatus I have been keeping.
The murinus usual suspect when it comes to bad attitude as it is much more common, though the other species in the genus certainly shouldnt be looked at any differently aha
