Are you sure Euthycaleus don't have urticating hairs? Ive read sources saying they do.
As far as I know they do not have any. Mine has never even attempted to kick them. I could be wrong, though.Are you sure Euthycaleus don't have urticating hairs? Ive read sources saying they do.
Yes I am just being cautious. Don;t want to deal with the hairs at all. It will be my first T. I still never had one. XD. I have parrots and I dont want these hairs flying around.May I ask why you don’t want species with urticating hairs? Are you particularly sensitive or just being very cautious?
I just ask because I was quite frankly afraid of urticating hair when I first started. I have sensitive skin and saw the horror stories of people having welts for weeks after unintentionally coming into contact with urticating hair. I avoided your typical terrestrial new worlds for a long time because of it. But I did finally try a couple species and realized with some care it’s nothing to be super worried about. I still don’t keep species like Theraposa or lasiodora.
I’ve had no problems with Grammostola (rosea, porteri, pulchra) , Homoeomma, euathlus, Thrixopelma (skip ockerti), and Plesiopelma. They all have hair but rarely kick them…I’ve never been haired by these except by a rosea sling that I accidentally pinched it’s leg while rehousing and I had no symptoms at all from it.
Gotcha! Well there are no species that fit that definition really. Docile is something you RARELY find with Ts as I THINK you may know. There is one other species but you'd be hard pressed to find one I think.I mean new world without urticating hairs that is generally docile.
