That is the coolest damn thing I've seen all day! Thanks for brightening my afternoon :D

BTW, how's the temperment on that geniculata? I think they're great, and may eventually find one in my area for purchase,

Nocturnalpulsem,

The A.geniculata is semi defensive and agressive. I would never hold mine, but some people hold theirs. They are extremly agressive to food and will never turn down a meal, but slight disturbances in the cage like picking out remains, as long as you keep your distance, do not bother the tarantula at all. If there is alot of activity near them however, like filling up a water dish, and so much as one speck of water hits the spider, WHAM shes into defence position. These are all my observations of my 4" female.

Yikes! I knew they were good eaters, but I didn't think they were that defensive. Is it just a rule that the bigger they are, the more defensive/agressive they are?

Nocturnalpulsem,

They arn't THAT defensive, there are many spiders that are alot worse. But when disturbed, yes they will go into defensive position. Mine is 4" and it is probabaly as agressive/defensive as it will ever be, but if you compare spiderling to adult, yes as they get larger they become more short-tempered.

the P. cambridgei is not sexed for sure, but it is probably a male.

the P. ornata is the one i had that was but a sling... they grow fast.... i have another one i got smaller than that an d it's almost 4.5 inches... that one is about 5.5.

i buy frozen rats... no worries on that...

thats actually my smaller boa... she's not even 5 foot.
