As I would just love to have a room dedicated to Ts along with trying to break the record of having the most Ts and just having this great display of tanks and shelves.... I want to keep it simple yet satisfying.

I currently have 5 Ts:
g. rose, g. aureos, e.uataman, h.gigas, and a.versi..

I want to get at the most 10-15 more. so in this case, we'll say 10.


What would your top 10 Tarantula picks be.. if you could only have 10 ??

G. pulchra
GBB
T. blondi or T. aphophysis
P. metallica
P. ornata
A. purpurea
P. irminia
A. geniculata
C. marshalli
B. auratum

I know this isn't the most dazzling list, but I think for myself it would be a decently rounded out collection with some being handleable and some just being beautiful.

A versicolor
A purpurea
G aureostriata
B boemei
B albopilosum
A geniculata
L parahybana
S calceatum
B balfouri (i dont have one but I wouldnt mind lol)
P metallica (again, dont have it but would take it)

what ever ten you want you shouldn't ask other people witch ones to get you should research a bunch of different kinds and pick the ones that you like best
