I've got to tell you...this is quickly becoming my favorite spider. Beautiful, contrasting colors and as docile as can be.

Just like a B. smithi, only much more beautiful.

Who else loves this species?



Seriously...if I could own only one species, this would probably be it.

Well I'm here to tell you that you can have just one species and do not be afraid to give me all your other T's.{D

B. auratum is a very nice species indeed, I wish I owned one......

I think I need one. Are they big hair flickers? My B. smithi and B. emilia almost never flick.

They flick hair at first when startled but, then once they "realize" (just a theory not fact) that your not a threat to them. They usually let you coax them onto your hand.

This is a skittish species so patience and respect is a must. Very hardy species too.

Agreed

The 1st T I got was a B.auratum (I only have 2 T's but just ordered another) because I thought it was the prettiest. Also I heard they rarely flick and are easily handleable :clap: This is my baby approx 1-week post molt and is now approx 2" {D
