Hmm.....? That would be ANY captive spp being tong-fed once a month- with a gargantuan prosoma and butt shriveled up like a bean. :p

Yeah...you better watch it there, buck-o. The Ceratogyrus marshalli is considered incredibly beautiful by many fine citizens. Myself included. :)

An ugly one, though? Hmmm...does such a T exist? I can see beauty in all of them, even the ones I don't especially care for.

I agree with you there. Any animal neglect looks pretty ugly.

If you're asking about a specific species, I'll post one when I find one. ;){D

I think MM Lampropelma and Psalmopoeus are underrated. They're so fluffy!

+1 :eek:
sure that nub is funny looking... but those patterns!!

I would argue that there is no such thing as an ugly tarantula genus/species, some are certainly more plain than others but none really have strikingly "hideous" features. I think the closest you can get to ugly is a hagard, old MM of any species.

By the by... what is ugly? :?

I can't think of a ugly T i mean some are more attactive then others but never ugly. Most are colorful in one way or another so i think it depends if you find one T more beautiful then another. Which changes person to person

Seems to me this is a question better addressed to NON-tarantula keepers - I think that no matter what tarantula you name, those of us on this forum will easily see beauty in it.

Doesn't look like a tarantula to me that's the only reason I say its kind of ugly.
hahah thats goofy but in a cute sorta way. I personally find nothing appealing about the Theraphosa genus. big...yes, but very brown and drab in comparison to others. even a freshly molted blondi is "ok" at its best. but that is simply just my opinion...please dont rake me over the U-hairs for it.

Underfed male? Awfully leggy. I remember many years ago seeing a photo of pokies for the first time, and thinking "that's not a tarantula" when seeing the pokie stance. Therefore, I never wanted one. Now of course, I want P. metallica.

I don't suppose I'd turn down any T, but I don't personally like the horned baboons.

Horned baboons have no appeal at all to me.
I could call them ugly, no offence to those who like them.

But I find theraphosa very attractive, so to each their own.

g. pulchra are kind of boring to me. although i dont think any spiders are ugly really. each t has a special thing about it.

What about whatever this thing is, my friend said that he "found the cat playing with it" That was a long time ago I was a T. noob, it was probably a male, it just ran around all day and occasionaly drank some water DSC00894.jpg

horned baboons
i will mostly will end up with one of them one day, but not today


i think slings who haven't received adult coloration (except those that have vivid color, avic, GBB, etc) and are obese and in premolt are pretty icky. like LPs. but luckily they grow out of that stage fast.
