Looking at that color leads me to think that it's a female. A pic of the molt or a ventral pic of the T would help tons in that regard. As far as Psalmos go.... generally speaking they're not the best for handling. They can be lightning fast, tho it's in bursts (think sprinter.... tons of speed, no stamina). They can also have a bad attitude. It really depends on the individual T. Some are more prone to being laid back. With a sp. that is traditionally considered a "no touchy, just looky" T, I'd play it safe and keep the handling to a minimum. They do tend to bite, though their venom isn't bad when compared to that of pokies or heteroscodras. Mainly their speed is the concern for handling, simply because an accidental drop or fall could easily be fatal... which would really suck for such a gorgeous T (well, it's no good in general, but I'd hate to see a Psalmo go)..... it's your call, but always gauge the mood of the T first, no need to get tagged if it can be avoided. That being said, please post a pic of the molt or of the ventral side of the T. Also, how big is it? I ask about size because with this sp. the females tend to get that much brigher orange to black contrast as they get larger, whereas the males tend to be much more subdued in color. When they're slings though, they all look the same for coloration. Also, this is clearly past the sling stage, it looks to be a juvie, but it could be in between the color transition...... still though, gut says girl. Which makes you a lucky guy if we're right.
