    well next month i'll be placing another order for t's and i'm looking for another couple arboreals to maybe add to it i currently have a few avics and will be getting a geroldi on this order as well if all goes right, so what to add is the question. I of course am thinking of p. irminia though they can have an attitude.

    Iridopelma sp. like hirsustum and Avicularia sp. like purpurea or amozonica.

    please elaborate as to which Tapinauchenius and why, though a quick search yeilded plenty of the color purple and a few threat displays

    and mods, if i knew you were going to delete the troll response i wouldn't have replied. quick action though.

    A lot of people have the Tapinauchenius gigas.

    But I prefer the T. plumipes, love the coloration on them and mine seems to come out a lot and chill on the cork bark.
    I'd say any of them are great to have.

    Please elaborate on how "Get all of them" is a troll response. I mainly keep arboreals and love them, hence my reply. ;)

    You need to be more specific when you ask these silly "what should I get next" questions. Do you like color? Patterns? Size? Does temperament matter? OW? NW? Some of these might help us narrow it down to a few suggestions. But then again you know what you like we don't.

    Judging by your two post its seems you find defensive arboreals unnerving, if this is the case I suggest you stick with Avicularia. But if you want to venture into more arboreals you're going to have to take a chance and learn to deal with defensiveness. I would much rather deal with a runner than a kicker. :)

    actually i have an amizonica that will threat display all day, i am debating throwing a P. irminia on the order but there are of course other options being weighed
     
  8. If you don't want to go old world then any Psalmopoeus is a good bet. They are quick but mine mostly just hide when disturbed. When it comes to old worlds Pokies are a little similar in the fact that most of mine just hide when disturbed. Their venom is powerful but as long as your sensible its not too much of an issue. They are also pretty and unique in appearance. The African arboreals tend to stand their ground more and are far more defensive IMO, but don't expect to be handling any OW...

    ooh i like that one, though i bet it can be a bit agro. and potent.

    The males only look "ugly" after maturing. Many males will show dimorphism after their maturing molt, so it's not unique to P. irminia.

    Personally, I think male P.irminia look slightly like "washed out P.cambridgei" actually :D

    I think that's why you see P irminia x cambridgei hybrids every once in a while. The mature males look very much alike.

    might end up with an irminia. as long as they end up being availible at the time of my order, maybe a couple avics i don't have and my promised virsi of course. and if he has any larger avics at the time those, 1.5" ones seem to be past the really sketchy stage of growth. hopefully i get a geroldi. not arboreal but he's got a good price on juv genicalata i'm gonna grab if i can too
