That is a beautiful H gigas.
Just curious, how much substrate do you have in there.
These guys LOVE to burrow and need fairly deep substrate.
I would say at least 6 to 8", possibly more.

Ok cool.
These guys build pretty awsome burrows. I started a burrow for mine right along the side of the tank and she made a cool home out of it plus I got to see her often.:)
I love the way these guys look.

ive been old that he/she changes color when its due a molt like yours in you pic thread

Yeh they get a very nice orange color.
In fact at first I thought I had a king baboon till it molted.
Yours looks like it molted not too long ago.
It's pretty cool to see them go thru the color change.
