Hey spiderkids! I'm looking to buy my son his first tarantula. He is 4 now and will assist with care (he is very respectful with my own T collection so far) until he is 10 at which point the T will officially be given over to his care with supervision. I'm looking for something that's bulky, calm and handleable, long lived and has a bit of color to it. Female, obviously. So...Pulchra, Pulchripes, Smithi...? Whatcha all think?
