Those aren't all terrestrials. I can't give you the top 5 myself because I simply don't know. King baboon is nice and beefy, but some would say its an obligate burrower not a terrestrial, but I consider it the same thing. Some of the Aussie species get pretty darn big as well.King baboon,
I heard somewhere that Australia and New Zealand are considered New World (or at least semi-New World... if that makes sense lol).Edit: not sure if the Aussie sp. slick hairs tho, never read much into them. Is Australia considered part of the old world? I think so, hmmmmmmm....
What's an Indian red? I'm intrigued....King baboon,
I like how you chastise Anastasia for not reading a post, and you go do the same dang thing...1.) G. rosea
2.) G. pulchripes
3.) G. pulchra
4.) G. ockerti
5.) E. murinus
Hope that helps Btw; This is all from experience.
I believe I was on topic. Just pointing out your list is the exact opposite of what was requested.Lets just, stick to this thread, k? Thanks

I'd feel badly allowing the OP to get it in their head that those species are large terrestrials without urticating hairs.
We make alot of words here cause of tarantulas I am so lividum; mad, angry, vicious.=p
I would have researched them before buying. =) Though if I didn't it would be a nasty surprise to get a face full of urticating hairs while inspecting my new pet.
I think urticating would make a good curse word.
It is in my book! Personally I keep very, very few species with them for a reason. Although my just under 1" C. ritae (dwarf species) trying to hair me was pretty cuteI think urticating would make a good curse word.
Yes, that is Lampropelma violaceopes. Gorgeous and with a large legspan but I've heard they can be quite reclusive as well. I'm sure some individuals are less retiring but there's probably an equally likely chance it would be very shy. As slings and juvies, they're as much a burrower as any.I haven't really been won over by any of theses =(
I liked the look and size of the Pelinobius muticus the best but it seems to have a lot of down sides from this website.
Takes 8 years to grown into an adult =(
Very strong venom =(
Likes to sample anything that could be food =(
Like to burrow =(
I've been looking into the Arboreal T's and I think I've found one I'm happy with. Its the Singapore Blue. I'm not 100% sure what the scientific name is. It appears to have changed recently? Lampropelma violaceopes maybe? or Cyriopagopus sp?
Anyways whatever you call it. Its Arboreal but also seems to be a very good display pet. From what I've read they borrow while young then when the grow up they climb. I was trying to avoid Arboreal's because of their speed and I didn't want to have a pet web. Being able to see it is most important to me.
This is a big guy. I'm guessing she will be mostly legs but that's still cool. Less chance of getting hurt in a fall.
This one is aggressive but there are only two bite reports that I've found and both of them were very mild so I'm taking that as their venom is on the bee sting side of the scale instead of the tissue death + hospitalization side.
Just to verify I've got the names right its this one.
I'll prob start a new thread sometime next week if I can't find all the info i'm looking for but do any of you have advice or recommendations about these?
