    Hello everyone, new to the forum, I have been reading a lot of the post and there seems to be a lot of good advice on here, and very friendly. We have 10 T's so far. My fav is one I got from a pet store in Sarasota, Fl. She was abused badly while there. She is missing a whole leg and part of another, But in all she has a wonderful temperament and loves to be hanging out with us on one of our shoulders. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of the people here and making some friends.

    I have (all common names) 2 rose hairs, 2 brazilian white knee slings, 3 Mexican red knee slings, 1 Mexican red rump, 1 Chaco golden knee, and 1 pink toe (btw- just picked it up Sunday and it molted Tuesday morning). The one that was abused is one of the rose hairs, she was molting and one of the employes at the store pulled her molt off before she was finished. It's so sad these pet stores will let just anyone tend to all the different animals with them not knowing how to take care of them.
