Well I want a pretty one, its okay if it's a bit more aggressive. The thing is I get really paranoid about their health so I might have to poke it once in awhile to make sure it's active, but I don't want to get bit. I'm not really a fan of the big abdomens yet, but it's something I'm sure I'll get used to. I really like the size of my pink toe right now. So basically, something a little more colourful.

Sorry guys but I think I really want the Antilles pinktoe! I'm going to keep this page though. I think caring for another pink toe will definately make me ready for whatever else is out there.

I have two cats ;D

if i'd just gotten an A metallica, i think i'd add a B Boehmei as a next T.
skittish, some are hair kickers but not defensive.

great eaters too.

i think you'd enjoy lookin at the legs - i sure do.

I think your right . Tinkletoes , if you want to poke ts alot , be expecting to get bit . If you dont want to get bit , and want to poke every t you get , I would recommend a hamster or something .

I'm not going to be poking them every hour of the day guys. -.- If it's sitting there doing nothing I'm going to give it a little poke and report back here and make sure nothings wrong. I'm a beginner, you can't blame me if I get worried!

Don't stress Mr Tinkle. Your Ts are fine. They are very sedentary creatures to conserve energy. It is normal for them to remain motionless for hours, even days on end. Also, if they move around too much their prey will be scared off. Instead of poking once in a while just watch for wrinkled or mishapped abdomen, legs being curled under the body, or erratic behavior not in tune with normal activities.
i understand your concern, I am still very nervous about mine as well. Imagine my stress when four of them sealed their burrow for over 8 weeks. One still refuses to surface.

No problem;). Tarantulas are more resilient and intelligent than we give them credit for.
