    Animals well packed and healthy, arrived promptly as indicated by minibeast supplier. O rentzi seem to be a delicate species- was worried about injuring legs as they don't seem as robust as the E tiaratum I have, but the transfer to new enclosure was successful. 1 week on and all still alive and well. O rentzi are a little harder to find at times than E tiaratum and are not as thick-set but it's interesting to be able to observe the differences in habit.
