That is different. How did you get hold of that little guy there in the UK?

Very nice!

I got it from http://www.bugsuk.com/ and when he had some in stock he sent it thru the post, I think it cost £10 + £5 delivery. he came in a little pod like a camera film container wraped in a heat pad.

At the moment i am feeding it fruit flys and small crickets, and its kinda cool watching it in action. cuz it moves like a flower or twig blowing in the wind but when its about to catch its prey it moves very quick.
this is how big it was when i got it

Its cool :D
