Ich habe dieses interessante Tier seit 3 Monaten und es ist immer wieder spannend anzusehen wie agil es ist. Mein Becken hat fast 400 L. Die gute hobst den ganzen Tag über den Boden, ja man kann sage hopst. Sie macht Sprünge von 3-4 cm. Dann werden die Augen ausgefahren und gleich danach die Zunge (sieht jedenfalls so aus). Trotz ihrer länge von ca. 15 Cm und den Dornen, welche bei dem Versand die 3 Tüten durchstochen hatten, klettert sie sogar das Gestein hoch.

Sehr interessante Abwechslung in meinem Becken
