Well, I found a pretty good deal on some 2" G. pulchras. I made my order, and my first T should be arriving on Tuesday. I am seriously ecstatic. I ordered the G. pulchra from invertepet. He has been real nice and straightforward to deal with, I would recommend anyone to him.

T-arrival time: 2 days, 7 hours, 36 mintes, and 24 seconds.....but who's counting? :D

You'll love the G.pulchra, it is an awesome species to own. Very calm and docile.

Thanks guys. One question, I've heard of a couple people who have very aggressive Chacoan Gold Knee and B. smithi individuals. So, I'm wondering just out of curiousity, have any of you ever heard of an aggressive G. pulchra?

I've personally never heard of a G. pulchra biting anyone, all of them I've seen are docile beasties!!

Thanks, guys :)

G. pulchra can be nippy, depending on the specimen. I've seen some that will rip your face off, and some that you can let crawl all over you and not even flick a single hair - ever.

It depends on the individual and 'that time of the molt', too. Kind of like A. seemani and even G. rosea, really.

Well, I got the G. pulchra today. He seems like a real cool T, not exactly a face-ripper or anything. ;) I couldn't believe how small he was, 2" is smaller than I pictured. He was a little nervous, but that's to be expected. When I tapped him with the paintbrush to get him in his cage, all he did was calmly stroll into the cage. Seems really cool. :) Well, I am off to get some crickets, as I'm sure he's hungry.

Bry :D
