She has been sitting in her hide for 13 days since I got her and I decided to take her out to make sure she's still OK

My plan is to take her out and put her down on the back of a chair or something and let her sit for awhile. With dim lights and no distractions. Then I'll just put her back in her cage. I'll do this once a week and then start handling her more.

Anyway. I dumped her out of her hide into my hand and she seemed calm. So I put her on the back of a chair and she just sat there. Her colors are COMPLETELY different than the day I brought her home. She was grey with a black head. Now she is entirely reddish brown. I think it's because she's calmed down a lot.

Anyway, I sat there watching Seinfeld while she explored the chair. It was funny - at first she started moving so slowly it was barely noticable to the naked eye. Once she got into the fake leaves, she started crawling around more. Whenever I walked by she would jerk her head back and freak out a bit though.

When the time came to put her away, I didn't even have to untangle her from the rungs of the chair. She was a little nervous about being grabbed, but she didn't put up a fight. Once in my hands she was kind of exploring around.

Put her back in the cage and she went for a little dip in the pool and back into the hide.

So all went well! I'm so excited because she didn't flip out or attempt to bite.
