Since not everyone checks picture threads, here are some three pics I took today of "Hera", the girl molted a few weeks ago and was out. Took the opportunity to get some pics of her and then fed her. Enjoy!

Yep I know what you mean they are a good looking tarantula and I agree hardly no one looks at the picture thread.

She's absolutely phenomenonal. I often find myself drawn to this sp. I will definitely have to own one at some point.

Aren't these guys recommended as an intro to OW species? What is their speed and toxicity like? Both relatively low compared to other OW? Or are they pretty comparable?

Very fast. I am not sure on toxicity but as they are Asian I'm sure its pretty potent.

I wouldn't recommend those as first OW's.

Had those in the past... very fast and pretty high strung (IMO not like a P.murinus, however). Venom is one of the most underestimated, I tell you. I view those, venom potency talking, just like 'Pokies'. Overall, they are amazing.

Well darn I'll have to stick to GBB for my heavy webbing!

However my n. Incei I've noticed loves to Web just about everywhere in his enclosure.

D. fasciatum grows to similar size and is also similar looking. They are heavy webbers too and are usually sold at a very generous price here in Europe.

They do not grow to a similar size...they're much smaller. And they are heavy webbers, but not to this degree.

Chilobrachys in general are spectacular. It's just that most don't have such amazing coloration! You can't beat the C. fimbriatus webbing, though. If there is a heavier webber in the hobby, then I haven't found it yet. And they work fast.

Not all chilos are as defensive as C. fimbriatus, though. Both C. andersoni and C. huahini prefer to run and hide IME.

I suggest you a C.marshalli, or another of that genus. Seriously they aren't that bad, temperament talking. Definitely a perfect OW for start.
Dat horn :-s

Do these require a hide or will they burrow given enough sub?
