Well I mean, not sure if I'd agree to the reasons for getting it, but, just expect some more nervousness really.

No offense intended, but wanting a spider because it was rare, (and sounding like you're rather new to keeping pokies) didn't sound all too wise. But its your money, I don't have a problem with it. If you think you can handle it, go for it!:clap:

How many years? Not terribly long, like say Brachypelma's.
Humidity levels? Keep the same as other pokies, you'll be fine.

I have the same experience with mine as everyone else. Pretty calm and very pretty.

BTW, very beautiful specimen you have there, David.

the best way to find out what is best for your spider is to research its natural habitat this is where you need to start. If you are still unable to obtain what temps/humidity from their natural habitat then you probably have no business owning it anyways.
