what do you think the most handable tarantula there is
My female A. avicularia.
My Brachypelma emilia who just passed away this week was my most docile T, Loved to be held.
My Grammostola pulchripes is like a toy, it's very docile. Not to locusts and crickets, though.
I hope you're not one of the two, or else.....
Each tarantula is an individual, thus will have individual temperaments as well. With that in mind some of the more docile terrestrial species tend to be G. pulchra, G. pulchripes, E. campestrtus, B. albopilosum, and I am sure there are quite a few others out there.
My thoughts exactly but if I had to pick one of those as the MOST docile and handable, Id say the B albo would be your best bet.
The most handleable tarantula is the one that allows handling without flight, bite or flick. Even those in the 'docile' species are individual in that regard.
of my t's, i would say my chilean flame is the most docile by far. she loves being held.
G. pulchra by far.
I'm a little concerned about people who claim their T's "love" to be held; you should look up the word "anthropomorphism". Your Ts don't "love" anything. They are tolerant of being held, and maybe enjoy your body heat. That's about it.
That said, I'm getting both P.ultramarinus and a chilean flame with the order I have coming, so it is really good to hear that people have had pleasant experiences interacting with them.
Exactly. I have a G pulchra that is all bite.
Id say my G. rosea as she tends to just sit, then walks slowely.. My B. vagans is more entertaining because he walks faster and is basically a toy
my A metallica.
Since when do tarantulas love to be held?????? :FAIL:

obviously.. most of the Brachypelma sp. belong to that category lol
In regards to the OP, I agree with whoever provided the most vague answer (ie. depends on the individual, etc)
The T with the fewest bite reports seems to be the pink toes (Avic. avic.): http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?54498-Avicularia-avicularia
Also, the bites seem to happen when people hand-feed crickets and the T then confuses a finger for food, or when the T is unbalanced and is trying to hang on/keep from falling off by using a fang. Personally, I've never seen an avic avic that wasn't docile
Dwarf Chile Flame - also very slow & small!
a. avics by far, they may roam around some but I think my cat is more grumpy than any of my avics lol
I love that sp. I've been wantin at least 1 maybe 2 for a while now. I think that velvety black color is gorgeous.
