Yup! Definitely a stroke of pure luck. I opened the door to my lab, and there she was jumping across the floor about a foot in front of my toes. And I was right on time for a meeting, too! So when I grabbed a jar to get her, all I was thinking was "Please be easy to catch! I can't be late to this meeting!" Sure enough, I cupped her on the first try, and she climbed right up the side of the jar:)

I was very tempted to buy a lottery ticket.... haha!

mine are both the meanest things alive and always attempt to bite me
Hmm..... mine seems to be fine. Hasn't shown any interest in biting me yet. I can just prod her around, and she just crawls around accordingly. I love the way she cocks her head up to look at me when I open the enclosure.
