Got home last night and found another one. Very, very slightly smaller than the first, but much feistier. Bit me twice, just on the way from the incubator to the baby-tank four feet away.
They seem to like warm ground temperatures a little bit more than they like climbing the slate. They do go on it, but not constantly like an adult would. There's an undertank heater under one end that's set to turn on and off with the lights, so even if they want to hide in a tolet-paper cave they can still choose one at the warm end and get a slight metabolic boost... which encourages them to come out and run around. The bottom edge of the slate stays cool, so thermoregulation doesn't seem to be a problem. One thing they do both seem to like climbing is their little cardboard tunnel-caves. Apparently, when your head's smaller than a dime, that counts as high up.
