This thread started in 2003..............wow.......
If I could have only one in my "collection" lol..It would have to be the Curly Hair (Brachypelma albopilosum). I love the fact that all they do is eat. I love watching spiders be spiders and eating their food is one of the most entertaining things to watch from stalking, catching, eating, and cleaning up the mess afterwards. also patients is something we all could learn from tarantulas as they seem to wait at the entrance of their burrows for food to pass by. And as we all know in the wild food doesnt come on a regular a basis as it does in captivity. so patients is a virtue.Given the law of averages, let alone the theory that every action you take would have to have been done exactly the same in the past, given the scope of infinity, I'm sure this question has been asked. However, for fun's sake..
If you had to make a choice, what one spider would you keep? Let's say for arguments sake, it has to be one that's atleast occasionally available in the hobby. What are your reasons behind the choice? And for the hell of it, how about that one dream T you know you'll probably never see, but would jump at the chance to keep?
My realistic choice, personally, would be the C. fasciatum. For some reason, I just think this is the single coolest T of them all.
My unrealistic choice, would be that "Cyclosternum pentaloris" or whatever it was really called that brought up discussion a while back, whether or not it still exists, or was a short-term hybrid, or what have you.
