    Well that's a bit scary! I've never seen the speed of ours feed because she's always in her burrow when she does it

    Fast aren't they. I love how in this video she just casually plods around to greet the cricket as if to say "well hello there"

    As for a burrow, she has never attempted to make one, never even done any digging (not even at moult time). Just seems happy living out in the open like that (not that I'm complaining LOL).

    Thanks, and yep the speed is amazing. Always makes me wary when I go in to get the water bowl. If she really wanted to tag me, I wouldn't stand a chance.
