Advertisement So I've been wanting a new T for a little while, wasn't sure if I wanted an old world or new world, but I ended up getting a Grammostola pulchripes (Chaco golden knee). And I love her! She is already as big as my full grown G. rosea. I was told she was roughly 1 1/2 - 2 years old. And if I'm not mistaken, I think that is an accurate age. She is beautiful. She demolishes the crickets faster and harder then my H. lividum! I got her yesterday, and The lady selling her to me was handling her, I also handled her yesterday. But today, I stoked her abdomen with a paint brush, and she instantly bit it! So I don't think I will handle her anymore. Is this normal for G. pulchripes? To be calm and docile one day, but very defensive the next? Her fangs are HUGE, bigger then I thought they would be considering her size. I would hate to get bit by her. So I'm not going to risk it. If anyone has any stories or opinions on G. pulchripes, I would love to hear what you all have to say. Negative or positive.
