forgive my paranoia which obviously reacted first...

now, let's try this again:

both are GORGEOUS little Ts and that first one is almost unbearably cute. =D

be sure to post pics of when your second one molts, i can't wait to see them!

Last night I go to check out my P. murinus sling, Thing...and she comes out all rubbery from a completed molt. Still can't figure out why she was out and about already, but she's doing great today...

So I just get back from the store today and find my little 1" A. geniculata like this!

Weird! I went to the very first link and all I saw was part of someone's left hand, wearing a few rings. I tried to scroll as much as possible, but I couldn't get any more than just the hand.

Wysi, the confused....?!?!?

Don't be sorry... that is a GREAT question as I too, would NEVER think to handle, let alone disturb a little one so soon after a molt.

Veterans?:?

I may just need to open my explorer the next time I try. AOL's browsers aren't usually as "advanced" as the other browsers available. :)

Okay let me clear this up. The little one is in a vial that is all webbed up...I opened it to check on the little bugger and it crawled out of the top. I let it crawl onto my fingers rather than try to get it back into the little vial, seeing it had just molted. I've never seen one cruising around after a molt, but I didn't want to hurt it trying to make it crawl back in. Don't know what else I could have done to keep it safest...

Well... I wasn't sure. God forbid someone should tell me it's o.k. I'd be ALL OVER them! Like AllenG said, the little ones are so cute and fuzzy and cuddly......=D
