    Hi everyone,

    I've recently got into the hobby and I've already got a small L.parahybana and an adult B.smithi and am now looking for a good challange for my third T. I think i want another terrestrial, but am not bothered about colours or appearance, really looking for a T with an interesting behaviour. Any ideas??:?

  3. P. murinus often constuct a fair amount of webbing and their defensive attitude could definitely be considered challenging.

    how about an Usambar Baboon (Pterinochilus sp.)? I called her web head cuz she likes to spin web and carry dirt a lot...
    edit: I must post it too slow...but oh well..

    A. geniculata - impressive size, nice markings/colors, not bashful, and an aggressive eater. Relatively easy to find and inexpensive as well. (from online dealers)

    Are you thinking docile or aggressive?
    Well here are my picks: Pamphobeteus sp., C.fimbriatus (webs extensively), or M.robustum

    To give you more ideas, here's what I plan on getting next year:
    Arboreal:
    Poecilotheria miranda (if available)
    Avicularia geroldi
    A.minax
    A.bicegoi
    A.jurensis
    A.purpurea
    A.metallica
    Psalmopoeus irminia

    Terrestrial:
    Cyriopagopus thorelli
    Any Haplopelma sp.
    Ephebopus murinus
    Any Pamphobeteus
    Therophosa apophysis
    Megaphobema mesolomesas
    M.robustum
    Hystercrates ederi
    H.gigas
    Chilbrachys fimbriatus

    Good luck on choosing,
    Mike

    I will promote H maculata as much as I can. A beautiful and very unique arboreal. They are big eaters and fast and slightly aggressive. They are a great spider.

    Terrestrial and interesting behaviour in my books means Pterinochilus. They make amazing web structures and are highly defensive. Very cools spiders.

    Cheers,
