i was reading on another forum and someone mentioned that the pinkfoot is larger than the birdeater??
is this true??
what are your experiences with keeping these?
is one more docile than the other?
is one easier to care for than the other?
.....update me on the differences and similarities on these two big mamma-jammas.....

hmmm, i'm no expert but i beleave that the goliath birdeater is much bigger as in mass and body size, as the pinkfoot goliath is big but has a longer leg span, at least from what i've heard, never actualy seen an adult pinkfoot yet---Jeff

what about species care between the two....im always reading about how the blondi is a bit more "tricky" to care for (than other spiders) with the humidity requirements and all...
are they both the same as far as the agressive/defensive factor goes?
anybody got pics they can post of the apophysis?....ive seen blondi pics before and they do seem to be a large "thick" bodied spider...i dont think i've seen any pics of the apophysis though....

hey

t.Blondis are more bulky and have a bigger body, aphosysis are leggy. Blondi is probably heavier
