What species should be considered terrestrial or burrowing? Pt murinus and C. fimbriatus for example, should be considered burrowing? What about T. blondi?
As long as most T's would use a retreat, what shlud them be considered?

T blondi as well as some other terrestrials are oportunistic burrower. This means, they normally dont dig their entire burrow but rather nock on a mouse home, eat him, and make it her own. ;)

There are just way too many burrowing tarantulas to answer this question. Assuming you are interested in the tarantulas you mentioned we can help you there.. but otherwise, you need to be more specific on the tarantula you are interested in. We could be here all day compliling a list of burrowers.

P.murinus though, will adapt to whatever situation you subject it to. Some people call it semi-arboreal, terrestrial, or burrowing. In my experience they are more prone to burrowing when they are slings rather than adults.

Lol, google " pet hole tarantula" and see what you find. Make sure you filter the search or you may be looking at porn for awhile...

Well, I have stabilished a goal to me to reproduces at least 12 tarantulas, trying to do it with preferences to 4 arboreal, 4 terrestrials and 4 burrowing species.
I already acomplished reproduction of Pt.murinus. What would like to know what should I classified it.
For arboreals I have Av. versicolor, Av. braunshauseni, Av. diversipes and H. mac.
I at the moment I also have Acanthoscurria sp, T. blondi, E. murinus (this I know its a burrowing for sure) and C. fimbriatus.

Sounds kinda dumb, but its always nice to have different species with differents habits expeciences.
