      Unhappy I killed my T... :(:(

      I was getting my juvenile cobalt blue out to show my brother and it jumped and hit the floor. Hardwood. He doesn't really care for them anyway. If I hadn't insisted he see it, it would be alive. If I had been smart and put it on my counter, it'd be alive. I failed. Has anyone done this? I'm so sad and mad. I can't believe it. I feel sick.

      I mean out as in coax her out with a roach. I don't try to hold her.

      Yikes! Sorry for your loss.

      That's definitely a species I would leave in the enclosure except for rehousings.

      I agree. I was only going to open the lid and coax her out with a roach. She was so fast. I have never experienced something like this before. I've lost t's but never like this. I'm always so careful. I honestly would have rather gotten bit than lose one of my babies. I will never ever make that mistake again. I still feel ill. Do I really deserve to even keep t's anymore...

      All you can do is learn from your mistakes and try to prevent it from happening in the future.

      I'm so sorry for your loss. Don't beat yourself up. Accidents happens. All we can do is learn from it and move on.
