In that case I 2nd Pslamoepoeus. I have two 3inch P. irmina and there pretty easy to manuever around when needed. Haven't tried holding them though!?! Not sure if anyone will "recommend" holding too many arboreals.
To the OP... I agree with farrisbaharom... There is nothing better than a Psalmo.. I do have to change the order in which to get the Psalmos..
Only get these if you want one that is FAST.. So far my Psalmos have proved to be faster than my Tap.. But I only have one T. gigas for now..
My Psalmos are skittish.. They choose to run & hide if I even touch their enclosure.. So cleaning is easy.. They are awesome eaters..
I threw in a cricket with my 5" female irminia.. I looked away for 2 seconds.. Then I hear a "thud"... The irminia came running out of her tub web and hit the other side of her enclosure.. That much speed & force to make a loud thud.. That was great.. I couldnt figure out what it was at first.. Then I saw the irminia hanging on the other side of her enclosure..
Popcangenie, Aw, what the heck!? Go ahead and get yourself a couple P. ornata. I recently got mine so can't tell you much except they're kinda shy and retiring as sling so far- and growing fast...... Uh oh! Maybe not after reading post #4- which might rule them out....
Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder I'm finally getting a subadult P. cambridgei next weekend. IMO, I think they are much more beautiful then the P. irmina.
On the other hand, I finally found some awesome pictures of P. reduncus thanks to TWT, & can't wait for my sling to get bigger. Their copper color is awesome.
My Pslam sling is also very skittish. The slightly vibration makes it disappear. However, I have 3 T. gigas & they are all on crack, vibrations just send them in laps. Two have gotten better since they webbed up the bottoms, but the third one is aweful. Currently it's in premolt & had hidden itself away, but I look forward to it going back to it's devilish ways.
Also, why not a pokie? Start off with a sling & learn how to deal with the speed. My P. ornata sling stays out in the open & doesn't away or out when i'm doing things.
