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.
