We're stuck with the 'bird-eating' nonsense forever, aren't we? :banghead:

It does nothing good for public perception of the hobby.

I do understand what you mean, man, but let's not forget that, technically, Avicularia in Latin means exactly 'bird eater'.

avi + cularia :)

The average American thinks Latin is a type of salad dressing. :rofl:

I appreciate your educated perspective, but most people in the USA are never going to know anything about Ts that they didn't see in movies or on TV. Scary names don't help the perception, which is already poor because of all the silly Hollywood stuff.

Are there any pics of the female Avic lynnae?

I photographed a few unidentified Avics in Loreto Peru and want to compare
