    Friendliest tarantulas

    In my opinion, and I have owned thousands of tarantulas, the Chaco Golden Knees and the Rose tarantulas are the most docile tarantulas for beginners. I have never heard of either of these being aggressive.

    Brachypelma albopilosum

    The friendliest is also one of the ugliest, Brachypelma albopilosum. I trust handling curly hairs more than any other species.

    In general Grammostola and Brachypelma are good genera.

    I love G. aureostriatas. My MM is as gentle as a lamb. I can poke him and prod him and stuff him in cups (when cleaning) and he's never so much as flicked a hair at me. The P. cancerides is another story.

    You do realize just how old this thread actually is, don't you?
  9. Thread revival...............and now it's dead again.

    I don't think Lorgakor,Scott C.,or mushroom spore are even around these boards any more.
  10. Lorgakor, is our admin in the candian forums.... she is still on the boards!!!

  16. Hey all, and yet another addition to this arachno-pleistocenic thread. My most laid back/friendly now would be a close toss-up between my male pulchra "Scotty" and female B emelia "Amelia". Those two are the epitome of serene. Btw, she's got a huge butt now :eek::shame:. It's diet-time {D.

    She was probably just looking for a soft spot to bite....LOL:D
  18. until you deal with some Louisiana hentzi. Smaller juvies are often fairly docile. 50/50 chance of subadults being slappy to near 100% for mm when found out for a stroll- as they nearly always are.
