Arboreals...

Heteroscodra maculata - my first after a long drought
Stromatopelma calceatum - my next, after my wife gets used to the first
Cyriopagopus schioedtei - definitely my third
Haploclastus nilgirinus - Gotta have this one
Iridopelma hirsutum - fuzzy & fierce ( the two words shouldn't be in the same
sentence)
Tapinauchenius gigas - maybe
Psalmopoeus pulcher - maybe
Poecilotheria ornata - it's like a reverse of the next one
Poecilotheria regalis - way too beautiful to pass up (and big)
Poecilotheria metallica - the one I wanted as my first, but my wife made
threats of vera bradley ensembles and gambling at
the boat
