    That is fantastic! This species has become one of my favorites over the last few months. A world with more of them in it is a better world!

    She is indeed. The guy I got the male from said he is such a big fella, will she be able to handle him? How little he knew!!!! Took the little fella all morning to pluck the courage to give it a go. every time she drummed, the tank rattled and he ran away....PMSL.
