My new OBT had me fooled until now. In the morning, he is curled up snuggly in a web. I go to bed at night and he's curled up exactly how he was in the morning....I figured he never moves. But NO, I just got up with the flashlight and checked on him and he is running all over his enclosure sticking his legs through the holes looking for an escape. Devious....

I love how OBTs are seen as both very fast and mean, yet those of us that own them would love to snuggle them! They really do have strangely adorable personalities!

I think OBT's are awsome they are active and pretty mean and they are beautiful. My sling OBT's name is Demon because how ruthless she is with her food. she is my most aggressive eater

New suit soon! I just fed mine a cricket for the first time. Took off the top of the enclosure really fast, threw it in and closed it. HAHA. He didn't budge. Make sure you post pictures when yours comes out of hiding even BIGGER!

Mine ate then went into hiding for only 2 days before molting into this.

I have yet to see any defensive behavior. (she?) hides from me.

So normally handling my T's doesn't bother me but after all the read up on the obt's had me a bit worried lol so when it came time to transfer this little doll I half to say it took a bit to loosen up and open the deli cup.... deep breath.... popped the lid lol and right out like lightning she was on my hand adrenaline pumped very quicklyafter that but soon faded as I noticed once she got to my hand she slowed way down and just Hung out! It was a great experience and I love my new obt...

PS... still a little nervous though lol

Holy cow, I would have freaked if it ran out on my hand! I'm glad you didn't get bit and the OBT didn't get hurt. I'm sure I would have reacted and sent that baby flying.
