Out of all your T's which one would you say is your most vicious hunter. Not the numbers that they eat or their hunger, but which one completely destroys their prey with a devastating attack?

Mine would be my 2inch T. Ockerti. She loves to hang on the sides of the enclosure and as soon as a cricket is within her sights she swoops down and grabs the cricket and literally snaps the head off as I can see the crickets head dangling off its body. I feel sorry for the crickets as they never see her coming from above.

I had an A. avicularia that would jump and catch a moth midair. It was pretty impressive.

my B boehemei comes to mind i've literally watched her rip a roach apart before eating it and one time one went under her artifical plant leave and she pick the leaf up and went after the roach one of the coolest moments ever

N. chromatus, P cancerides, P. murinus, A. avicularia.
They are all pretty much equally vicious. The P. cancerides will sometimes just rear-up and threat at the superworms, but when it attacks...;P

my most aggressive T would be would my rose hair because he will kill the crickets even if he isnt going to eat them. however my most aggressive eater in my collection would be my Dolomedes tenebrosus. not a T but she literally shreds any cricket that I put in her tank.

I wish my MM D. tenebrosus was still alive. He would kill anything that came into his tank, yet I could handle him if I wanted to. D. tenebrosus is a better eater than most T's{D.

I will agree with you on that. I have to change the sub almost monthly to clean up all the cricket parts. They are surprisingly adaptable to being handled.

I'd say the GBBs. They seem to do a bit of overkill. Always an audible "crunch!" {D

I always think it is funny when my P. cancerides freaks out and flings dirt everywhere to catch a superworm, when my E. camperstratus picks it up without even moving. My C. fasciatum also really pounces for no apparent reason.

i'd say my genic, she's so so evil in general, pouncing water or anything that moves.

My Goliath will bite every part of the cockroach before it eats it. The other day it dug for a superworm that was an inch underground.
