Yet the OP stated they wanted a docile species? My Acanthoscurria geniculata is nothing of the sort. A. geniculata are generally considered semi aggressive, skittish or nervous species. It depends on the personality of the one you get but having one and a G. pulchripes I would say the later is much more docile.Okay, I'll bite- and repeat it once more after 119,000,000,000,000,220 similar replies to this near exact same inquiry posted many times on this board- Acanthoscurria geniculata! You can't go wrong, there.
+1,000,000. Mine are great.I am not sure how much you want to spend but my suggestion is a cousin to your rosie. Grammostola pulchripes/aureostriata (Chaco Golden Knee). They are moderately fast growers, super fast compared to the G. rosea and they have a great appetite. Mine has never refused a meal. They will get a bit bigger as well reaching up to a 8.5″ legspan. It is just like your rosie just all buffed up and lacking the 'pet rock' ability, with better coloration. Even better they have basically the same requirements. Sold yet? :clap:
Ay, not trying to tell you what to do, but jumping from a Rosie to a OBT is rather steep. My OBT is one evil son of a [censored], and I got him/her after I stepped up from rather aggressive Lasiodora difficilis and a P.irminia. All T's have different demeanour to them, but the biggest majority of OBT's on Youtube, forums, and other readings are highly aggressive.thanks everybody.i hope they have it though,if not i might just get an obt .i read that there aggresive but they have some for only 24 bucks . Thats dirt cheap for such a great tarantula.whatever my choice is i know im gonna be happy.i cant believe i spent 21 years of my life without knowing how great tarantulas are. Im gonna pass having a tarantula as a pet to my kids and there kids lol.way better then dogs
