They are cool

I have 9 T's ranging from .5" - 3.5". Two of my newest arrivals are G.auriostriata (1"-1.25"). Those two are already my favorites. They have personality for sure. One in particular is not skiddish. He climbs up on his hide when I open his deli box house lid and wants to get out to walk around. I decided not to try to handle my T's but this little guy seemed to want to explore so much I decided to put the back of my hand out and he walked on without hesitation. Definitely a docile little guy. However, I had trouble getting him to want to climb back into his house or into a cup. He started gaining confidence and speed. I used a paint brush to block him from shooting up past my elbow and he raised up on his back legs. It startled me and I flenched. Sent him to a 10" fall to a thickly padded carpet. When I put a cup down he shot in it lighning fast. I figured then even these gentle little guys are probably safer not trying to handle them, at least for now.

Good luck with the new arrivals!

Very nice, I've just ordered a G. Aureostriata Sling along with a A. Geniculata they should be here next week.

It really is an addictive hobby.

I said it a long time ago....it is a synonym for what leads to an obsession that doesnt have 7 steps for recovery..... A perfect release for the specific perfectionists.....;) Keep going.

Nice. Your g. aureostriata has a big booty! I expect that your parahybana won't be that small for very long!

My parahybana is the fastest grower I have. It was the size of a dime 4 months ago and now it's almost 3 inches. Varatious eater. Your gonna love both of those T's. Nice choices.

EXTREMELY addicting. Nice T's. I started with 1 and now I have 20. Gotta stop for a while, no more room to put them.
