    No matter who you are or what you do, you are beautiful and loved. and if you think everyone hates you, then don't you think God would've Thanos snapped you out of existence? have a good day! 💗

    That's what snakes do with long hair (mine too), mostly in their search for traction, so we can't exactly blame them. If you stuck me on top of a tall tower (aka a human) & I had no hands, I'd do whatever it took to avoid falling too.

    You guys had me cracking up reading these posts this morning. I was going to go through and quote everyone but I figured I'd just do a single response.

    Over the weekend I got him transferred into his enclosure, and have just been letting him do his thing. While I've heard curly hairs are pretty docile, I don't intend for this to be a hands on pet, he's just to look at. They do have urticating hairs, or hairs that they kick off as a defense mechanism, and I read that they can even blind predators in the wild if they get in their eyes.

    So far I've seen no posturing or hair kicking from this guy. Even when I was ushering him into a catch up to transfer him into his new enclosure he was just relaxed and walked right in for me. The ease of care so far as been ridiculous compared to the reptiles. I'm excited to watch him grow and while I kind of bounced the idea around of starting a small collection of Ts I think I might just stop here.

    I would agree that the care is ridiculously easy in most new world species as long as you start with an old enough one. Slings and certain species can be quite a bit more demanding than this size of curly hair. I find feeding more difficult than reptiles that eat f/t but it's still very hard once they are a bit grown as long as you aren't dealing with really fast species.

    Yea I'm a little concerned about feeding but I obviously haven't tried yet, I figured since I just put him in a new enclosure I'd leave him alone for a week or so before even trying. I really hope he'll take dubias because I've gotten everyone else off crickets and I do not miss having them in the house, but I figure 1-2 a week won't hurt anything.

    He should. I never had an issue with any T not wanting dubia and preferring crickets, so long as they are big enough to eat baby dubia in the first place. I too am not a fan of crickets.
