maybe its a stupid question, but from your experience... who's the better eater,
G. pulchra or B. smithi?

Both will eat heavily as slings, both don't care very much about food as adults. I'd say they're about equal. There will always be individual differences, of course.

My personal experience has been that G.pulchra eat more regularly than B.smithi. Yes, both will refuse meals now and then, but my G.pulchra do that less often and for shorter periods.

How does that even make sense? A horse a piece? I feel like I should know this, my grandfather breeds and sells horses for a living.

Funny that pulchra has 100% of the vote right now. My smithi's have always eaten pretty well. I did vote for pulchra as well, as in my experience they typically eat better. It's the B. boehmei's I have a problem with, I hate them because they are so beautiful but never like eating that much.

The pulchra I have kept/keeping eat more regularly than the smithi I have kept. I believe that they are roughly equal for the most part though.

Whippersnapper. Sounds fishy :D

@Op, there's always an answer :)
I do not have a G.pulchra yet, but my B.smithi is a good eater. When she's not busy kicking the crap out of herself :shifty:
