Advertisement My mother has just become a 6th grade science teacher after a long job search (win!) so she wants to decorate the classroom with various oddities, i.e. my hobbies. I'm giving her a couple of my carnivorous plants and a tarantula. My problem is, which one should she have? Contestant #1, Java This my P. regalis ventrally sexed male, 2 inch leg span. I believe he's currently in pre-molt, though I'm still kinda new at this hobby. Super skittish, though very handsome. I'm just a little concerned because if he is actually male I definitely don't want him spending his last moments in a class room, I would want to sell him to a breeder or something of the sorts. I heard Pokies don't take nearly as long as other Ts do to mature. Contestant #2, Red B. vagans female, 2.5 inch legspan. Very defensive, has flicked hairs and a couple of threat postures recently. I am certainly more attached to this girl than the regalis. Such a looker and I love the attitude. The T will be rehoused into a bigger more display oriented case, whether it be arboreal or terrestrial. I trust my mom the Ts will be well cared for, I'm just not sure which one would be better for her. The 3rd and final option is that we buy something else. All recommendations are welcome. Thank you!
