    In response to the query of which is the least desirable species, isn't that kinda like asking which child you wanna kick out of the car at a high rate of speed? ;P
    I like em all. Every one possesses worthwhile traits, though some do possess more than others, if I may paraphrase Orwell. Still, I gotta say I wouldn't dump any of them.

    I want to add another one. I am finding my H. maculata to be increasingly boring. They are beautiful when I see them, but a little nerve racking for cage maintenance. One of them is always visible, and one always hides.
    They just don't do much for me. It wasn't a spider that was ever on my wish list, and now I've ended up with two of em!

    Hate is a very strong word, and I can't imagine hating any species....
    Too much energy involved in that :)
    However, there are some non desirable species for me. I have no clue why people are attracted to them, but that's just me:

    T blondi
    H lividum
    H gigas

    Probably more, but I'm too tired to think of them right now.

    I would say Brachypelma smithi, cause i think they are boring. I am not a big fan of the genus Brachypelma. The one i like best in the genus is B albopilosa. CHEERS!!!///Johan

    Speaking of Dead T's.... I am still wondering if that spider you caught ever recovered from the wasp sting.

    No, she died approx. 16th Nov (stung on the 10th Sept.), hardly regaining any movement at all. She was unable to take in water or anything. This was quite interesting because in many cases where T's are stung by Pepsis sp. wasps, if they are fully paralyzed, they often completely recover, however those with only partial immobilization often do not recover. In this instance the wasp was a Hemipepsis sp. and the spider was completely paralyzed, yet died anyway with virtually no signs of improvement.

  14. I don't know if I hate any, but there are some I I really dislike


    Prolly a few more but can;t think of them now

    all of them

    I realy hate those obnoxious opinionated T's. I mean when they start making biased statements that have no grounding in reality, god. Those realy dull T's are boorish to I mean they should get a new wardrobe and get with the times, like bright and fuzzy is the only way to go. ;P
    You are all cracked, there is a T for everyone why ixnay any species.

    Aphonopelma texense(and all very similar species found in this region of the country). I guess it's because they're so easy to find in the wild here, and they're not particularly attractive anyways.

    You know, I haven't yet found one that I wouldn't have. Maybe that's because I'm still new to the hobby, haven't been bitten yet and thus far know no fear. :wicked:

    I think that's probably the best way i've heard it put yet. The more available something becomes, the less status it holds. (why do people buy infiniti instead if nissan? lexus instead of toyota? it's all about status, and the G.rosea is like the lesser of two choices because of it's status. How many people would you say "I drive a nissan" to, and how much more eager would you be to say " I drive an Infiniti". It's the same thing with t's, I (ashamedly) have almost not named my G. roseas in my collection list because they seem so beginner, and lack status. I really do like them though, it's just sad that they seemingly drag on the bottom of our lists because they're cheap, and available.
