"HANDS OFF! They may not bite and it may not hurt but do you really want to find out. Keep the humidity up with these ones. Probably the creepiest of crawlies I recommend these for adults only (JUST IN CASE). I just witnessed these guys eating their shed skin and it blew my mind. Very cool looking pedes if you are into that sort of thing.."
