    I thought it would, if I had more room I would buy one and have it's final enclosure 10ftx6or7ftx5ft :)

    Cool, just making sure. I might get some soon I have a spare enclosure sitting there.

    Thanks David!
    "She" is going really well! I haven't handled her much yet but she is getting used to me now, she takes mice right out of the tongs and doesn't run and hide every time I clean the enclosure now :D

    Great shots I_V! I love that little one.

    One another note, my little panoptes just walked over my hand to feed (I won't do it regularly, I really don't want her associating my hand with food) which is a Massive step for her! She's also been letting me touch her feet with only a little hissing!
     
  7. 8 months by my reckoning Chris. "She" eats like a male( everything, everytime) but can be very reclusive, like a female? I'm guessing female, however.

    Any pics Flavi?

    Nice. She looks a lot like my female, especially the head shape. Mine also eats very well, although not always immediately, but she isn't reclusive at all, quite happy to come up to me.

    That lacy looks unreal Richard!

    Thanks mate, they are only about 8 months old. They have really grown over the last 2 weeks though (it looks like they are growing everyday!) as the weather in Melbourne is slowly warming up.

    Does anyone have any guesses as to what sex "she" is?

    I've found Panoptes to be really difficult to sex. I had 2 that acted like male/female (they even 'mated' last year) until a few months ago, they obviously both recently came into sexual maturity & both were definitely males. The one that I thought was female, due to a slightly smaller, thinner tail shape & head & was always submissive suddenly took over ownership of the enclosure & I had to separate them. Now I need a female.
     
  14. Very nice Flavi:)! Loving the yellows, I'm sure they're much brighter in the flesh.

    Thanks for the reply. That's a bummer :( Do you know what size you could accurately get them x-rayed?

    The yellow looks awesome under a mercury vapour globe Richard :)

    My remaining male (I sold one of them) is about 1200mm long, my vet told me once they reach sexual maturity, if that is true then I'm guessing about now. I was going to get them x-rayed but didn't need too.

    Thanks Chri5

    The yellows are completely washed out, hard to get a picture of. She's got a bit of pink/brown too but that's hard to get.

  20. Nice tristis, Chris! Good luck with her. She looks like an AS locale?
