What is the pride and joy from your personal T collection? Also, most of us talk about the T's that we enjoy the most; however, is it any that you are not that fond of in particular? If so, which ones and for what reason? I would say that "pet holes " are the least of my desires....but I have love for them too.

My pride and joy(s) is my M. robustum pair(my avatar is the male)

as far as least favorite. Id say B. smithi, only because I am so sensitive to their hairs. but I still love them.

I absolutely LOVE my largest female C. marshalli. My friend gave her to me as an 1/4 inch sling because she wasn't growing fast enough and in the last nine months she has grown incredibly fast, she is a solid 3.5 inches. Six months or so ago I bought five of her sac mates and none of them have yet to pass 2 inches.

i'd never part with my rosea even though she is a pet hole, since she was my first T. nor my boehmei. he's hilarious, always out in the open doing something strange.

most of my collection are slings/juvies growing, and it seems like i have a really hard time wanting to part with any of them. the closest would be my P. murinus, i guess. she's a total hole, i never get to see her even if i get brave occasionally and try to provoke her out in the open.

Pelinobius muticus is probably my pride and joy, with my LP being a very close 2nd. The P. muticus is always making its burrows different. It seems everytime I look in on it there is a new chamber or another tunnel. I don't think I have/had any T's I don't like.

My pride and joy is a dead MM B. albopilosum.

The ones I like the least are Lps...they just don't do it for me.

My pride and joy is my two GBBs, one a 2 inch unsexed, and the other a 5 inch female.

I also love my G. Rosea which was my first T, and she's about 4-5 inches herself.

She's the best pet rock you could own.

The GBBs are my favorite cause they are beautiful, active, and relatively docile. Plus heavy webbers. Gotta love 'em.

I'd probably say my largest of my T. gigas and my P. cambridgei. Their colors and visibility are my favorite things about them.

My A. hentzi sling is my least liked. I will probably give it away as a freebie when I sell some scorpions. The slow growth has been a huge turn off and the adult colors just don't do it for me.
