I'd like to get a Tapinauchenius as well someday. Probably a T. violaceus because of the beautiful purple. That will not be for a while though. I find their apparently legendary teleportation capabilities too intimidating at the moment.I'm really quite smitten with them. Got my sights set on maybe getting a tapi later this year...
Just took a look at some photos of that species in the gallery and it seems to me that they go through a number of different colour stages throughout their lives. All of which are very pretty. I have to wonder why some Ts evolved to be like that. Pamphobeteus are the same way.Still really want to get a Y. diversipes sling.
Terrestrials and arboreals both appeal to me in these ways, albeit differently. Currently, I'm focusing exclusively on terrestrials. But I will definitely consider getting some arboreals eventually. Probably Aviculariinae, as I find the speed of many other new world arboreals too intimidating.I love how they hunt, how they move, the proportions, and the coloring...
I would like to get a P. metallica someday. Those colours are unbelievable! The H. maculata sounds too reclusive for my liking, but they are certainly beautiful as well. Definitely more of a long term goal, though. Not ready for that kind of speed, or the prospect of very potent venom.Hope I will be in a position some day to get a pokie and an H mac. that camouflage
I know tarantulas don't use their eyes for much, but it is hard to deny that Irma looks like she is eyeing that cricket!And sometimes ominous.

Very graceful movement as well. As I said before, that is one thing about tarantula that I just can't get over. I imagine most people would probably find how they move creepy. I on the other hand find it very elegant.
