I have always talked about how my female B. hamorii (still smithi to me) doesn't flick. Well today the nimrod was on the wall for no reason as usual and I wanted to add some substrate to her enclosure.
I gently tried to move her and she flicked twice in response. :shifty:

Not sure how many times she has done it but she now has a small bald spot. I am not a fan of the bald look I really hope she stops. But alas nothing I can do. Pretty sure it's going to be a while before her next molt.

Just frustrating.

For me, it's bald butt A seemanni. I assume she lines her enclosure with them -- never flicked at me.

My X. immanis can't decide. Right now she's doing a weird half hair and half bald look. I can't say I like it.
