It depends, they can be. As far as my T's go, my two most skittish by far are my male B. boehmei and my female B. vagans who are both juviniles. That, of course, does not count any of my smaller than 1 inch slings, I think the are all skittish, not matter what type they are.
My juvie B.albopilosum and G. aureostraita are very calm. My six rosehairs have six different types, one grouchy, one shy, one calm, one not quite here, one eating machine and the sling who can't decide if her crickets are food, something to run from, or room mates.
I also have a P. cancerides who is shy, sweet, and gentle.
They are all very different, which is why keeping them is so interesting.

Probably my most skiddish Ts are my N. chromatus slings. I hardly ever see them! I have to sneak up on their deli cups to get a peep as they run and hide in their little burrows at the slightest sign of movement. Probably my most easygoing Ts are my G. aureostriata slings and my A. seemanni female. My Cromatopelma cyaneopubescens female is either easygoing or shy depending on how her mood that moment. :rolleyes:

Anastasia, glad your supermodel T has changed her ways and is now into the curvy look! :D

I think B. smithi are more skittish as slings and seem to mellow out and just become pet rocks as they get older. I got a mature female that is about 6" and she just kinda sits there.... unless you drop a cricket in of course! Then she is a blur around the cage trying to catch the cricket. Pretty cool spider. Nothing quite like watching my P. murinus slings though, they are about 2" now and when i drop a cricket in almost as big as they are they still have no trouble taking it out! And it all happens sooooooo fast!

My B. Smithi is slightly more skittish. If I even moved too quickly or stomp a bit heavy around her/his tank shes off to a safe location.

I haven't had most of my Ts long enough to really pick out any mods or behavior. My Haps are real low-key until nightfall and darkness.

But the P. cancerides I received today has a way of just roaming around on her sweet pace (never once ran, never once threatened, never once reacted) and treats me and other obstructions as if we are part of her bizarre new geography rather than warm-blooded potentially threatening giant entities. Hard to describe how that felt but really, really cool. Self-absorbed, not a care in the world? -- using misleading anthropomorphic terminology.
