I really like this one! I'm gonna look into it more, thank you guys for helping me!I would suggest Avicularia avicularia. They tend to be a little nervous but they are beautiful and inexpensive. Also try searching the forum for beginner arboreals. I'm sure there are similar threads as this one.
Lovely haha, I can't wait to get a tarantula! Arboreal species are just so cool imo.Beware of the poop cannon....
I honestly had zero interest in arboreals, but picked up an A. avicularia and she is one of my favorite spiders. She likes to decorate her enclosure with poop..
A. Avicularia of course! In my experience, very calm and patient with me. With every molt they get fluffier, and their pink toes and mouth are super cute.Hello everyone! I really want to get into tarantulas, as they are really fascinating to watch. I would really like a good arboreal tarantula that's for more beginners like me, any suggestions?
Thanks for all this info! I really like the look of the Avicularia avicularia, very cute. I think I know which one I am gonna get now! Definitely gonna read those care guides first though.^This, for sure. Absolutely make sure to read these threads! While these tarantulas are good beginner arboreals, they aren't super forgiving of husbandry errors, so make sure you read these.
Psalmos are great! I have three, and for me they have been the easiest T's to keep. I'm unsure though would I recommend psalmo as a first tarantula, they are very fast and kind of bolty in a twitchy way, and the bite is said to be quite bad (they lack the urticating setae, so more potent venom).Psalmopoeus irminia would be my choice. My 1st arboreal was a P. cambridgei, great genus.
