    I seem to be getting interested in the dwarf tarantulas i know a couple of them but was wondering in your opinions what are some of the absolute "must have" as long as they arent crazy rare anyway.

    Edit: Forgot to say that they are obligate borrowers. I can only see the legs of mine :(

    Now that is an awesome one for some reason i didnt even know it was a dwarf i love the fact they are heavy webbers

    So far the only dwarf ive had was a juvie c. fasciatum loved it even though it spent almost all of its time in premolt hidden lol does anyone have any experience with d. diamantinensis? Ive got a petshop here that has a 3/4" one for about 70 bucks

    I believe pumpkin patches (H. sp columbia) are dwarf right? I think they look pretty cool.

    Yup they are and they are on my list to buy as well
  8. I don't have any dwarfs myself but I love the dolichothele diamantinensis, I think they max around 3"

    I always love seeing your photos in threads, they always showcase the beauty of your tarantulas quite well:D

    If you're into OWs, I'd suggest looking into Heterothele gabonensis. Beautiful dwarf species from Africa, they max out at about 2"-2.5" (so I've read.)

    Ami sp Panama, or maybe even yapanquii.. both are expensive and rare. In fact, I don't know anyone with the latter.

    This might be a bit harder to get but Theraphosinae sp. 'Panama' is a great species as well.

    If you can find one, Euathlus sp. red / Homoeomma sp. yellow. They are incredibly docile, curious, and adorable.

    Here's my girl:

    That's definitely a "full retail" price.

    I had a male until February 14. (I shipped him to a breeder after he matured.) They are very pretty, with iridescent rainbow coloring.

    Care is pretty simple. I kept the substrate dry most of the time but occasionally dripped water onto its webbing.

    Like most dwarf tarantulas, they are fast. They can also be a bit feisty.

    On this side of the pond that'd be heinously overpriced (that size sell for £20/$27 here), probably about right for over there though :hilarious:

    +1 for the D. diamantinensis, its a really cool species to keep. One of my other favourite dwarf species is Cyriocosmus perezmilesi. Looks amazing and mine were more visible than other Cyriocosmus species. Also webs alot.

    1. For that price it darn well better be a female.

    2. Its not a dwarf...if that matters.

    it would seem i cant find any n. incei they all seem to be sold out on the sites i frequent .

    Search the classifieds...I just sold my last one the other day, but they do pop up from time to time and shouldn't be too hard to find with all the good sellers/breeders here.

    They do. I was just curious because we often see that people believe them to be dwarves.....but they aren't large and are indeed really cool ts.
