I'm thinking of starting the hobby and I want to know which is the best beginner tarantula. Currently I'm interested in B. albopilosum or C. cyaneopubescens.
2" is the PERFECT size. Accanthoscurria geniculata is a pretty good choice, but they are far more bold and feisty than the other beginner tarantulas. They think EVERYTHING is food, and their urticating hairs are horrific. I would still recommend G. pulchripes, because they look very similar to the genics and are far more calm. But hey, genics are awesome. They grow like monsters.Thanks everyone. What size would you recommend? Is 2" good? And is A. Geniculata good also? I mention this just because they look fabulous and Fear Not Tarantulas has them at a great price!
