I agree. A B. Smithi (Mexican Red Knee) would be a good choice. They are docile, long lived and stunning. I recommend that you stick with a couple T's at first so that you know how T's act and their eating habits in general. Perhaps after a couple of months you should go with the more agressive ones. But keep in mind that the more aggressive that tarantulas are, the less likely you are to see them as much as the docile ones. But, that choice is up to you.

And especially don't mess with Gigas'. You definitely shouldn't taunt it.

I know. I only do stuff with the cage like cleaning and changing the water dish when it's in its hideout, which is so elaborately constructed, it can't see me, nor can I see it. During the nighttime it's been walking casually around the cage pretending to be a pokie, lol jk I know they're "semi arboreal".

Well I suggest you get a G.Rosea to get some experience on ground dwellers like I did. Other ppl just jump onto stuff as their first T.

I agree with Alonso99'
Get an young adult female B. smithi. It'll run you aprox. $125.00 - $150.00. It can live for 25 yrs.. After a while (when your 18 yrs old ) you could breed it and sell the slings.

Yeah, some people do "jump" on to some things, but usually after fair amounts of research, even observation of what others do. Do what works for you.
