Which T webs alot?
green bottle blue
or for more experienced keepers maybe an obt
but the obt is not for beginners
Definitely OBT. I have seen them completely fill a KK with web. Other big webbers are sometimes Avics. Mine webs a hammock in a corner, sleeps in it for a day or two then goes somewhere to do it all over again. She now has every corner filled, hammocks in all of the live plants and is starting on the ceiling!
GBB's and OBT's.
Thought I would be the first to rely but GBB's and OBT's. I would go with a GBB though, especially if you are a beginner. Don't want to see a thread a month from now about you getting bit!
Besides GBB and OBT, most arboreals web a lot, such as Avicularia.
Almost all arboreals and just llike everybody else said Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens and Pterinichilous murinus.
seems to poo on the cage more so than web it up =)
OBT's are quite affordable too for as beautiful as they are.
My OBT webs alot, everywhere within a few inches of its burrow there are webs all over. My biggest and best webbers though are my A. Francki and my Funnel webs, they make the coolest webby cages out there IMO.
H.incea webs alot aswell.
I would say most Arboreal's but My Psalmopoeus Sp. web the most out of all the arboreal's i have.
My avic avic webs a ton, and my female cyrio sp. blue has filled her entire container with web.
My A. minatrix has webbed a sheet over everything in her enclosure. Although that does make it hard to see her.
My Chilobrachys huahini webs much more than my OBT. All the OBT has done since I got him is eat once, dig a hole, and flee from crickets and mealworms.
(Although last night he did close himself in the burrow...incoming molt!)
c. brachycephalus for the un-experienced in my opinion. I hardly see them anymore being sold. I have a female though. SOON SOON SOON!!!!
They can peb allot too when they first start getting settled in.
Hogwash. They're the perfect beginner T. L-O-W maintenance and tough as nails (you just can't kill them). Yes, they do have some attitude. And, if you do something stupid (like I just did) you might get bit. BUT, in my experience beginners err on the side of being too cautious. You won't regret getting an OBT!
--the nature boy
No, in my opinion they aren't. The fact that they are hardy itself doesn't make them "perfect beginner Ts". There were only 2 bites from OBTs recently only (announced) on this forum. Not every beginner can handle (not in the physical meaning) more aggressive (defensive) and fast spiders like for one you do.
To go back to the original topic, this is quite nice of a webbing work:
what about C.fasciatum
