Hypothetical question time!

You can only keep one T. Just one. Everything else has to go. Which species/individual do you pick, and why? It can be one in your current collection, or one that you don't have.

I'd personally keep my M. balfouri. Why? It's my favorite tarantula; good looks, decent attitude for a baboon/old world, interesting behaviors, and just a very enjoyable species to keep all around.

Your turn! :D

<--- The one in my avatar. G. pulchripes. It was my first. I am not yet as attached to the new arrivals as this little 1/4 inch thing I have raised into an adult.

That's a hard one I would have to think alot about but in the end it would be one of the following
P. ornata
M. balfouri
B. emilia
C. cyaneopubescens
P. cambridgei
That's also something I don't want to think much on either (which I already am) so there's my top 5. :)

I forgot a why. I got her in bad shape from a crummy outfit selling abused animals online, and helped her turn into a great looking specimen. I didnt know anything about blackwater when i got her . shes also huge and insanely cool to look at. Best eater and the one tarantula everyone comes away talking about.

P cancerides - it is proactive but not aggressive and spends most of its time on the surface. When I was unpacking it, this T crawled out of the straw on its own.

A hentzi - a calm and friendly T. I have a 3/4" T which is always in plain view, and I just got a couple 1/4" Ts which thought it was more fun to walk laps on my hand than go into their enclosures (they didn't run away, but they did want to stay out).

A year ago I would have said Harpactira pulchripes, my first love, the reason I got in to this hobby. Today? If there was any way I could keep Murry, my male OBT. The sweetest there is. No t has surprised me more. He is molting now, probably for the last time.

I am unfamiliar with the word oosa. What does this mean.
"Let the feeling of peace flow through your troubled mind!"

Or some weird balogna like that lol. My mother used to say it to me when I'd get all worked up.
