    Wiscokid Arachnopeon

    because of the species or the price or both?

    revolutionreptiles.net has pretty competitive pricing as far as I can tell (admitted noob)

    I don't plan to purchase tarantulas in the next few weeks (although that's no guarantee that I won't!), but here are some species on my wishlist that meet the following criteria:
    1. I haven't yet kept.
    2. I would like to keep.
    3. I would feel comfortable keeping at my current level of experience.

    New World
    • Aphonopelma chalcodes
    • Aphonopelma seemanni
    • Avicularia metallica
    • Brachypelma albopilosum
    • Brachypelma emilia
    • Caribena versicolor
    • Ephebopus murinus
    • Neoholothele incei
    • Nhandu
    • Pamphobeteus

    Old World (I don't have any yet, and I am interested in species without urticating hairs.)
    • Augacephalus ezendami
    • Ceratogyrus marshalli
    • Eucratoscelus pachypus
    • Idiothele mira
    • Monocentropus balfouri

    I don't expect to be able to get more any time soon but off the top of my head, the main ones on my wishlist, in no particular order, are:

    Grammostola pulchra
    Brachypelma emilia
    Hapalopus sp. Columbia large
    Neoholothele incei
    Ceratogyrus marshalli
    Idiothele mira
    Theraphosa stirmi
    Poecilotheria regalis
    Poecilotheria metallica
    Pterinochilus murinus

    and for maybes, Acanthoscurria geniculata, Nhandu chromatus, Avicularia Minatrix, Brachypelma albopilosum "Nicaragua" and the "Goddess", PBUH, Pelinobius muticus that I hear about constantly.

    I'm sure there's some I forgot and some I don't know about yet to add to that list.

    I don't know when I will be able to get more. However I do want more. My interests are all over the place...

    Literally any Avicularia, Psalmopoeus, Iridopelma, and Tapinauchenius. When I say Avics I am including all the species that were recently changed. Avicularia purpurea is one I would really like.

    I would love dwarf Ts such as Euathlus sp. 'Red', Hapalopus sp. “Colombia", Cyriocosmus perezmilesi, Cyrtopholis portoricae, and Davus pentaloris.

    GBB and about 100 other NW terrestrials. Would love G. pulchra and iheringi, and LP.

    I really should not buy any more tarantulas this year, but...

    - P. rufilata - the first juvi female I see will be mine.
    - H. namaquensis - I blame @KezyGLA for this one
    - Tapinauchenius sp. - I only got my first (and second and...) one this year, but I like them much, much better than I thought I would. I think I need more.

    and I can't get this N. incei out of my head... and a H. himalayana might be nice... Also, if a young female OBT crosses my path I won't say no. Got to know what everyone is talking about.

    Great idea for a thread, btw. :D

    Very interesting! Do they do this for grooming? Going after prey? Another reason?

    Probably just an adaptation to survive in an environment with periodic flooding (in case they end up in the water, as after a defensive leap of faith).

    That is the one that I was just about to pay for when the water heater broke... maybe later.

    You got the hook up? If you can get me one for half that PM me! :)

    Lots of cool youtube videos on this. A local seller had some slings and I looked into doing a communal but decided not to for now.
