Love that tripepii of yours! Such a gorgeous species.
I feel like I missed a reclassification here. Is there any species still referred to as A. urticans? I have one on my wishlist but I was unaware of a potential change in taxonomy... why ya gotta play me like this, spider scientists
Yes, I saw that. My question was if it's another "B. smithi" situation where "B. smithi" still exists but it's not the same species that the name used to refer to
No tarantula family is complete without a Grammostola pulchra.
No, it's just Avicularia juruensis now.
just throwing my vote in for the GBB. like everyone else has said they are gorgeous, hardy, excellent eaters, and i love that they have multiple color forms they change through as they mature
- B.albopilosum (as slings I find them a bit drabby and ugly but when they start getting that furry look they are gorgeous bs grow really fast).
- C.cyaneopubescens (just amazing overall, colors, attitude, growth rate)
- P.pulcher (grow super quickly, love the orangy pinks, usually pretty calm)
- P.irminia (super nice jet black with orange markings)
- Caribena versicolor (striking blues, always calm)
*For your next tarantula I'd check out the C.versicolor, you mentioned how you could possibly be looking at an arboreal so this would be up your alley. Do not buy slings because they tend to be no very forgiving in terms of care. Due to this get a specimen roughly 1.5" - 3".*
another +1 to psalmopeous. Their more on the difficult side, but a good stepping stone to an OW.
- They're all big, beautiful, and fantastic feeders. Urticating hairs can be a little itchy.
- Lovely little dwarf spiders. You really can't go wrong with any of the species.
- Always one I recommend to people, no collection is complete without one of these beauties. I love all three of mine.
- Come in both olive and gold form, either way they're gorgeous. Fast growers and good eaters.
- What's not to love about a mini GBB?
- The classic tarantula, they have just great coloration.
- Other people have recommended this one, and that's because they're fantastic. A little more attitude than most NWs.
- These guys are probably a little above your current skill level but keep them in mind for the future. I love love love Tappies. They are gorgeous and fluffy and probably the fastest tarantulas in existence.
I would say Nhandu chromatus, they are cheap, I got my sling for $5.
They grow super fast and are always feisty.
I have a P. irminia and love the sling and adult colouration, and how they throw up those dirt curtains.
GBB for sure actually its my dream T (i only have one T at the moment and im not familiar with all of the Ts)
Avics are excellent arboreals.
