Yeah, I was speaking to someone that had one, said that out of ten it has an aggression of 50! :lol:

However, since it arrived, it doesn't seem very aggressive, impressive, but thus far, almost BENIGN.

I have made out a good set up for it, heat mat, good substrate, half a cocobut shell, but since she or he arrived, it has preferered to sit at the top of the tank, I hope it moves down at some point, as it is gonna be a task opening the lid to feed it!

I thought they were meant to be into burrowing, or being largely nocturnal, well all day. since this one arrived this morning, it has stayed on open display, despite the lights being on???

Do you think it will eventually go to its 'defualt' position?

I have two of these in my collection but I don`t see much of the because they spend most of their time in their burrows.So far I haven`t found them to be as aggressive as some I keep but they are still only juvies.

Just back from a weekend away.

It has now taken refuge under the coconut shell, webbed up part of it, and, as you say, it seems that I am not gonna see that much of it.

From what I have seen so far, it's aggression is exaggerated, or am I underestimating it?

Is there a way of prompting it to come out a bit, so that I can see it from time to time, without causing it stress, of course?
