    My juvenile currently has her head in the ground, imitating an ostrich I guess.

    The earlier picture shows her walking on the glass in her new enclosure, which I since switched out to a smaller one.

    I totally 5000% recommend these guys as first Ts. They eat great, aren't THAT prone to going AWOL and actually make an appearance on occasion.

    I have no idea about the urticating hairs because I have zero interest in handling and literally haven't touched the T by hand. Both of us are in good condition.

    She went totally underground. I had to neaten up the enclosure. Underneath the enclosure on the floor you can see her through the glass.

    If your T has burrowed. Leave it alone. By the looks of it. It looks like its going to molt. If they burrow they want to feel safe and private.

    I can confirm that the abdomen is fat and black. The T is totally underground, but still eating about 2-3 times per week, especially when my scorp refuses to eat.

    She gets second crack at food after the scorpling refuses it. Usually prey disappears within 12 hours, but lately about 24-36 hours.

    I moved the enclosure and got a clear visual, but from the bottom side. Aside from being fat and gray/black fat abdomen, she's looking good.

    Is there a chance that she's gonna molt? I got her on August 11 and she had molted recently, if I understand the seller correctly about 2 weeks before that.

    How fast do they grow? How often do they molt?

    The enclosure is typically 75-82 degrees and water is available at all times. The burrow is closer to the cooler side however, underneath the skull.

    If they actually grow that fast--astounding!!

    Elias Insen sold me mine. He's reviewed under vendors elsewhere in this forum. I totally recommend him.

    So far, the Klugi had been a perfect T, does everything is supposed to including eating very very well.

    The other 2 lasiodoras namely L. difficilis and L. para. are easier to find.

    She came out of the hole!! Luckily I got 2 shots. I suspect premolt, but I've only had her for a bit under a month. L klugi suspect premolt1.jpg L Klugi suspect premolt2.jpg

    It looks to be that way. When my LP was small it buried itself for a while before I saw it again. I have yet to raise a L.kluggi yet. But hope to acquire one down the road
