How old are you now? Just kidding! A larger subadult or adult may be preferable to a spiderling if you are learning or unsure of your knowledge on care. The smaller(younger) the spider you get will require higher humidity and may pose a problem for you depending on the availability of small prey insects or how squeamish you are about cutting or squishing larger insects to feed a small baby tarantula. If you are confident of being able to keep high humidity ,proper ventilation and adequate food then a smaller/younger spider might be more rewarding to keep because you will get to see it grow and change.Originally posted by foreverbug
At what age do you recommend I buy them?
I agree with this. Even though my collection is small I started with a rosehair and boy did I have misconceptions about Ts after that. My 2nd T was a 1/2" Curly hair, he has been the best experience and eats really well compared to my rosehair.Originally posted by invadermike
I don't think you should get a rosehair at first, It was my first tarantula, and it was kind of confusing, Rosehairs have weird habbits and tend to confuse begginers, I would reccomend a Curly hair, or Pink zerb beauty for a starter. If your looking for areboral then i would go with a pink toe tarantula, I hope this helps.
