Try a Pamphobeteus platyomma , colorful as a juvie. You could try an A. geniculata, or another of the LAsiodora genus "cristata".

I REALLY dig the H.incei, especially from the sling size....

amazingly gorgeous colouration, from soft olive with orange in pink, to white flecks, to a deep russety orange with a starr-y deep olive colour on the carapace, and ending in adulthood with a soft greenish-brown colouration with some soft orangeish stripes on the abdomen, with a deep olive colour radiating around the whole T.

Or get a miranda (bengal ornamental i think) ! Seriously, my mate got one about a month or 2 ago, and its breathtaking. its a Poec, but its just amazing. Just very poec like, but there;s some blues and pinks and flecks of purple. Just amazing beautiful T's -- i havent talked to my mate in a while, but i want to see pics!!

or the staple blondi...

or possibly another parahybana. Can't go wrong with a gigas, either :)

peace,
good lucK!

You could always pick up a Theraphosa apophysis/ Goliath Pinkfoot, not many have them in thier collections so it would be a nice addition. T. apophysis is said to have a longer leg span then T. blondi, but not as bulky.

I would love to get my husband a P. miranda. He really loves the Poeciletherias. He has a P. formosa, ornata, and rufilata now but he wants them all.

There we go :)

He got his as a sub-adult. We're thinking female, based on exuvia, but.. still not SO sure...

what an astoudingly beautiful adult the miranda is...

!!!!!
good luck raising yours, J -- if you breed it, I will buy :)

peace

I have heard about people losing theres to molt deaths and such kinda like t.blondis, does this spider die easy is it hard to take care of...because i was thinking about getting one just, i dont wanna spend 125-200 bones on something that is going to die on me 6 months down the road, i know there is a chance with any T dying but i have heard that blondies and pink foots are harder to care after then most T's, im kinda intrested in Lasiodorides striatus they seem like a cool large T

i've got a 1 inch t. blondi and she really isnt that difficult to care for...give her a nice hide, keep the humidity to about 85%, and keep her fed and she seems real happy.

Well it may be more prone to bad molts due to it's fast groth rate. I would treat as T. blondi if you get and pay mind to the moisture levels in the encloser.

Well at the moment I'm not kepping any T. apophysis, but I am kepping a T. blondi and think it is just awsome. It has such a strong feeding response that it will even attack drops of water. As for the cooler of the two I think it is kinda of 6 of one and half dozen of another. At least the T. blondi is cheaper so should you loose it to a bad molt it won't be as large a hit in the wallet.
