    The New Classifieds have entered Open Beta status and are now viewable to all registered users.

    Our New Classifieds can be reached by clicking "Classifieds" in the forum toolbar or menu. Any ads posted in the New Classifieds should be considered "real ads" and must follow our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules. Ads that do not meet our updated Classifieds Terms and Rules will be deleted, and warnings, without points, will be issued. While our current Classifieds forums will remain viewable during the Open Beta period, and current ads posted there can be bumped, new ads must be posted in our New Classifieds so you can familiarize yourself with the new format. The Classifieds forums will be closed once the Open Beta period ends.

    A tutorial on how to use the New Classifieds has been created and can be found here.

What's a fairly good sized, easy to keep pede for a beginner?

And what's one of the better places to order one?

Some S. polymorpha variants from the USA get fairly large and, since they're not so far removed from tropical rainforest habitats, tend to be a bit more hardy. They're also not as dangerous in a toxin sense.

For the biggest and most impressive NA pede, you'd probably want S. heros castaneiceps, which occurs in the Southwestern US and various other areas such as Texas. There are a couple of cool color morphs, as a quick google search will reveal. ;)

There's also a Texas Tiger, possibly another polymorpha variation... These tend to be orange-tan with slightly lighter legs and red head. These we have in stock (with S. heros coming soon):
