Thanks guys He was amazing to watch hunt this morning, wee demon! Was like watching jurrasic park!! Just gave me heart failure, couldn't find him in his viv, was havin a snooze under his substrate!
What do people suggest for taming them in terms of handling time? He is insanely fast just now and I don't want to restrain him when I pick him up.

hes a cracker Layla :) with taming I started just putting my hands in the viv without picking him up just to get him used to it, hes pretty tame now and will come out to see me when I go in and open the viv

Very nice.....
As above, they are curious confident little characters and will quickly start coming to investigate your hand once they get used to it. Ours normally run straight up our arm, onto the shoulder, then happily tour the rep room while we work perched on top of our heads.
They're not always keen on being restrained but happily will adapt to free handling very quickly !!
