Tap. gigas are little orange devils, basically. Very nervous, very defensive, and very fast...Plus, they're arboreal, which makes daily taks of feeding, watering, cleaning, etc. that much more exciting :p
If you're thinking of getting one, make sure you know how to handle fast, mean spiders.
Other than that, they're great! heh :)

Hmm, I've found all Taps to be nervous but not aggressive, especially as adults. They will bite if they feel trapped or cornered (like if you pin them - can't do that with a Tapinauchenius)... But if they're just roaming around they seem to do pretty well (but yes, they're quick).

Certainly nothing like your average Psalmopoeus.
