    I voted for the "docile terrestrials", only because Im so new to the hobby and my one and only T (as of right now) is a very docile juvenile G.pulchripes, who has totally helped me to overcome my fear of spiders :D

    Second choice for me would be the "Docile and colorful arboreals." An A. versi is next on my list.

    hmmm,tough choices,but i chose of course the big and the bad.:D
     
  5. I only have psalmos currently, but yeah I picked them for the huge package in a tiny vessel - speedy, shy, beautiful and a healthy appetite!

    This is only the beginning though... :wicked:
     
  6. Pokies, H Macs, and S cals are my cup of T ;)

    I am crazy about arboreals!! But there are several terrestrial genes I have and love as well. My favorite genes of T is Avicularia (Specifically A versi), my second would be G pulchripes, then every other Avic and Poecilotheria oh then there is the G pulchra and ummm well, I LOVE THEM ALL.

    There isn't a place on the poll for "All of the above". I don't care if they are fast, slow, climb, burrow, sit out on a log, or wave fangs at me. I love them all.

    I can't decide who my current fav(s) is/are. I like my rose hair, I like my pokie, I like my sun tigers (new molt on one!)

    I think I voted like 2 years ago, but def. large defensive Theraphosinae! Theraphosa, Pamphobeteus, Xenesthis, Acanthoscurria, Megaphobema................
     
  20. So old that they didn't have Lampropelma or Cyriopagopus as an option.
