I am ready to branch out in to the wonderful place of old world Ts. After keeping 5 new worlds I am ready to begin on looking for the old worlds. Some of yall out there give me some suggestions on which ones would be the best to start with.
I'd go for an OBT too.
Woah ! That is WAY to expensive. I got mine for $60 sling. Its about 1-1.5" long to. Whats cool about the tree spiders is they seem to grow faster and mine at least sit around on a branch in plain view allot. Especially if you place branches in a way so they can be on the underside but still in good viewing area. Pokies are great to and cheaper. I've seen some at around $25 and I bet if you look you could find a deal and get them even cheaper. They grow pretty fast as well. Heteroscodra Maculata is another really pretty one that is super cheap. Very much like OBT in speed and temper. Mine doesn't do as much webbing.yeah i checked a link to a dealer here on this site and a cyriopagopus 'blue' is selling for $125 for a 1",
A Poke is more skittish than defensive. There is nothing wrong with starting out with one IMO. For some reason alot of folks seem to think a Poke is a monster just waiting to bite someone which isnt true at all. The E pachypus is by far a more defensive spider than any Poke I have ever worked with.I personally don't agree(but I respect all replies everyone made) with the P murinus choicing, H maculata or any of the Pokies as a first OW T. I would think an E pachypus would be far better since it is underrated and many say it's more skittish than defensive as an OW T. This would also be my first choice in getting an OW, and I can't resist the bellbottom look on the females. Of course I'm not objecting personally to anyone's opinion just stating mine, to the OP, it's your choice and your decision, good luck!
Oo I realize the Pokies are not monsters that just bite, as for your E pachypus going overly defensive that's a note ill keep in my book, thanks!:clap:A Poke is more skittish than defensive.
