The idea is great and you captured the colours of the D. auratus prefectly (I have a pair :) )

Thanks, I appreciate it! It must be fun having such... non-cuddly pets. ;) They just look so cool!

Oh, I specialize in non-cuddly pets :D The assassin bugs are probably the most non-cuddly of all, but the frogs are not great cuddlers, either (although captivity-bred ones are not poisonous at all).

It's probably not wrong to say I want one, so... I want one! Right now. @_@
Seriously, this is super-cute and a great addition to your very creative series. Beautifully painted, with careful attention to detail and just the right amount of "don't mess with me" attitude.

Thank you! And it's totally not wrong to want one. Can you imagine them as pets?? They'd kill everything else in the tank and all your guests would want to lick them. ;)

They gotta be badass, or all everyone ever does is pinch their cheeks and croon...
