Liz,
You worry too much…hehe. It is fine to handle the babies and gravid females. You just have to be careful. As in no superman jumping from your hand in the air and landing full force on the ground. That could seriously injure the animal or eggs if high enough. If you want to take them out just sit on your bed an handle them. So incase they do jump they are not to high and they have something soft to land on. Just beware of newborns, they are quite evil (see above)…lol. After a few weeks though they are much easier to work with =).
-Mike
