Can you give a large specie of T's: specify if terrestrial or arboreal. thnks
There is a good thread (at least, the one I have read here) related to this topic: http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?t=45045&page=4

Large species (or is it the giant species that you want to be listed here?) are the most popular and sought-after among tarantula hobbyists. So basically, with the exception of some rare and/or hard-to-care-for giant species, its pretty much easy to list down. Here are some:

P. muticus - burrower

A. braunshanseni, and most of the Poecilotheria - arboreal

A. geniculata - terrestial

Even the G. pulchripes can be considered a giant as it grows fairly big...

Terrestials:

Xenesthis spp.
Theraphosa spp.
Pamphobeteus spp.
Acanthoscurria spp.
Megaphobema spp.


To name a few
Most terrestials are burrowers, many mix up tunnel diggers (Ex. Haplopelma) with burrowers (Ex. Xenesthis)

If you like the OWers,

Lampropelma and Cyriopagopus have some ginormous arboreal species.

Phlogius and Haplopelma (schmidti group) have some biggun's too.
