Here are a few pics of one of my Sumatrans out for a stroll! Sorry for the blurry pics, new camera and still playing with the settings! Flash + pedes usually doesn't turn out well so these were just experimenting. Also, it was a little hard to get him/her to sit still for a photo op :p
You can kind of see how red they are in the pics, nothing like seeing them "in person" though!







Enjoy!

Wow, didn't realize the pics were GIGANTIC! Might have to do some scrolling to see them properly!

EDIT - NM fixed them :) Enjoy!

Nice pics Dave!!!! They look pretty big, maybe you should try putting something in to use as a comparison to show the size :).

ROCK! Looks like a pretty big one. I think these might like it a little cooler, like mid to low 70's. That's the temp I keep mine in and I've had it for well over a year now, coming up on a year and a half. I got it as an adult. Don't know how old it is. Good luck with it. When I had it in a warmer room, it would run around acting panicky and trying to get out all the time. A big change in behavior when I put it in a cooler spot. Usually comes out to hunt or is under a rock.
