Other than release it back out in nature, I wouldn't no where to keep one. I'd be so afraid of crushing it somehow. I'd have the urge to keep it in my mouth to protect it. :dummy: >.<

That's what I thought it was at first but then I saw the front arms and I was like D'AWWWWW. What was really awesome was that every time I would look at it over my glasses (like really close up) it would LOOK BACK. So cool :D

Indeed! It was crawling on my arm when I first found it and I almost slapped at it until I realized what it was. I've NEVER seen one this tiny.

it must have been freshly hatched, but it was crawling on me -in my house- so how lucky was it to get somewhere safe !

No kidding, a little guy like that would be squashed in the wild. O_O"
