I know that bullets move fast, but it's unlikely I can dodge one good luck w/that OBT. I owned a nice AF, was the only T that gave me a threat pose every time I opened the lid. It's a beautiful animal, but their attitude is why I no longer keep them. It wasn't worth the hassle hahah.I know the speed of this tarantula
I own these as slings. They are among the fastest slings I've ever owned, about tied with N. incei. They are extremely nimble. Much faster than any Ceratogyrus I've owned.Funny that you mention M. Balfouri as it's also on my to buy list.
Be careful gaining info from care sheets, although mike's aren't too bad, they still stress humidity numbers and too specific temp requirements, both of which can cause confusion.@edesign
@cold blood I bet you've got some tips about how to set up the C. Marshalli enclosure then - I read Mike's Basic Tarantulas short care sheet for it, which looks like most of the care sheets he wrote. That means you only put some substrate and a water dish in and hope that it's not a pet hole
It's funny you say that, I have an A. geniculata and a little G. pulchra that is higher strung than my AF obt.Well, OBT or C.marshalli, the care is the same, you can't go wrong, and amazing genus nonetheless :-s
Btw to be honest my female C.marshalli is even more high strung than my female OBT... just for saying how much the single temperament and that molt after molt "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. AIDS" change matters, in those issues.
