Hi,

I was wondering what Brachypelma Klassi are like, the only Brachy I've owned was a Boehmei and it was constantly kicking hairs, not something I prefer...

Also any care/advice would be appreciated :D

Thanks!

They are one of the more skittish of the brachypelma. They do calm down some as adults, but in my experience they readily kick hairs when bothered. They can be a bit faster as well, they like to run and hide when bothered. They are a must in your collection if you like brachy’s though. I don’t react yet to the hairs from them yet, but I am sure I will over time. Mine are always out in the open, and even though they are young I still love how they look. This is my 2.5" confirmed female.

Ah well that's what I get for copying the name off of a For Sale thread lol...

Are they more skittish or more hair kicker-ish than a Boehmei?

Thanks for the replies!

I have three and all three are sweet tempered, not hair kickers at all. Maybe just luck of the draw. But then again, my boehmeis don't kick so much either :confused: I find the boehmeis are the most likely to kick hairs and the auratum is the most skittish, by skittish, I mean the most likely to be found on the back of my t-shirt soon after leaving it's enclosure {D

In my experience, these guys are fairly similar to boehmei, but maybe a bit more shy or reclusive. I've yet to have a boehmei take to a hide, but these seem to at least part of the time/molt cycle. They are also a good bit slower growing than boehmei.

My B boehmei is a really hair kicker than my B klaasi, the B boehmei when feels threatened or I do some move into her enclosure doesn't hesitate to kick hairs.

Mine is still a juvie, she does not kick, but she is skittish and seems a little nervous. She is very pretty, and I really like her. I'm assuming she will settle more as she gets bigger.

Mine was on its back when I left for work, I can't wait to get home and see it! It should be close to two inches now.
