Cyriopagopus lividum. My dad once did a rehouse and had his female in the bathtub. He was trying to nudge her into the new tank with a plastic spatula and she turned around and ran up the spatula, fangs clicking against the plastic, to get at his hand. He dropped it right quick and she landed in the bathtub in a full threat pose, venom dripping.What species do you guys think deserve the top 5 most aggressive tarantulas?
They aren't the 'orange monsters' always depicted. In all honesty I blame for this 'hype', the facts that:I've heard the orange baboon can be quite nasty...anyone had any experience with them?
Stromatopelma calceatum probably deserve the first place :-sNo real way to say which are the most defensive and feisty. Individual specimens always vary.
Most answers will be the most common feisty sp.
The best way to put it is to answer in genera
Any idea where I can get a sling/juvy?My first tarantula was an obt 9 years ago almost 10 now. Kept her fossorial with a half log in a 10 gallon tank. Zero issues with her, she bolts deep down at the slightest disturbance. I have another one that's maybe 1.5- 2" again kept fossorial and zero issues again. Never had any problems with either.
Honestly buddy you shouldn't have to look far. As my man Chris LXXIX said they are stupid easy to breed and are dirt cheap to buy and are often given as freebies when you order a couple of tarantulas online. I live in Utah and I see these guys often at either marks ark petstore or pets and such. Never more than 25$.Any idea where I can get a sling/juvy?
I was just looking at TSS (The Spider Shop) a while back... sadly, no 'OBT' (they have however other cool 'baboons' at very honest prices) at the moment but no problems... they always jump out, ah ah.Yea ok thanks I have access to a Facebook page full of UK breeders so I'm sure someone will have some to sell!
