    I lost Oscar, for some reason over half of his legs and his fangs got stuck in his molt.. I did what I could for him but after a little while I could see he was just suffering and took care of him.

    So I'm down to three healthy active babies.

    I cannot wait until Spring so I can get some Ts mailed to me. I have four empty cages that are screaming for residents.

    Aww, cute lil LP babies!

    I would recommend keeping them a little moister.. that'll help prevent them from having dry molts that they get stuck in :(

    It does look dry in those pics, underneath is damp... plenty of condensation/humidity.. The others all molted perfectly and quickly, he was bleeding and listless. Just pitiful.

    Two of them molted yesterday... little stinkers are getting big.

    LPs grow quickly! I keep my male on really damp soil... as soon as the top got dry, he had issues. I put them in the same category as T. blondi as far as humidity requirements go.

    I NEVER wanted an LP.. but I was given mine, so I couldn't say no lol

    I am SO proud of my little guy, he snatched a cricket right off of the tongs last night and ran away with it. You know that warm fuzzy feeling you get when a kitten does something too adorable? :lol: that was it! He's growing up.

    I really have the itch to get myself more 8-legged xmas presents.. I have really been itching for a Chaco.

    Hey, Mel, BTW, I was gonna ask you something...
    You used to have African Clawed Frogs, didn't you?
    I need some pictures of them for my website, I was wondering if you had any you'd be so kind as to let me use.

    Well, he had a very nasty temperament oddly, so I named him Lucifer. But I felt bad calling him that so I just stuck with Lucy :lol:

    He matured and was very restless looking for a mate, so I released him on a warm day, at least if he dies he'll be doing what his instinct tells him to.

    Oh I'm so proud of my little babies. I was picking cricket remnants out of their jars with some tweezers and Sylvester ran at them, so I popped a small cricket in there (still about as big as he was abdomen wise) and he tackled it and fought it to the ground :aww:

    The other little one did as well. I gave them freshly molted crickets to be safe.

    Miranda (my favorite and the biggest) is such a fatty she wasn't interested in the cricket really.
