Never do that again, kugg ;)

For me, I like the P's. Poecilotheria, Psalmopeus, Pamphobeteus... Id like a Brachypelma smithi, but alot of NWS just dont do it for me.

I enjoy Haplopelma, Poecilotheria and Psalmopoeus the most.

I don't yet have much experience with a lot of the genuses, but so far Lasiodora is my favorite.

HHHmmm, never realy thought about it.. I have over 70 different species and most are Aphonopelma, mainly due to their availability in the hobby. But, my favorte would run a close race between Chilobrachys, Chromatopelma, Megaphobema, and Brachypelma.

Right now I would have to say, for me, it's a three way tie between Poecilotheria, Avicularia and Brachypelma.

Poecilotheria are just too cool and there are so many of them. I also like the Psalmopeous but I really only know of the cambridgei and irminia.

(of course how can you NOT like Brachypelma with all the large, colorful, long-living species)

And now for my serious answer.

So far with my limited T experience I would have to say Psalmopeous and Avicularia...

blackacidevil,

There have also been a bunch of P.reduncus for sale lately...I currently have a 1" sling...well see how that goes. My irminia went from 1" to 5 1/4" in one year...fast growers!

I'm a huge fan of the Brachypelma. There is no other genus which combines good disposition, brilliant coloration, and a willingness to hang out in the open where you can appreciate them as much. You can get 2 out of 3 with many other genera, but Brachypelma has all 3 going for it.
