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?
King Baboon's actually aren't that bad most of the bites ive heard about its more the fact they have large fangs thats the issue more then the venom. Also the slow growth rate makes them have a long long life span females 30+ yrs sometimes. So to me its cool that they are slow growing because they live so long plus they get huge
