I don't have much experience in Ts yet, but you could look into Avicularia versicolor. These guys are beautiful.

re

if your going for avics, try for a A. minatrix or A. purpurea awesome looking avics in my opinion, or pokies (any of them are great), P. irminia, H. maculata, lots and lots of awesome aboreal out there though...

I'd try for a pokie!! They're more manageable than most books say, just don't get bit. They tend to be rather shy,not overly aggressive.

Yes, I don't think pokies are as defensive as Cobalts. Just don't attempt to handle a pokie. But if you have a lividum you can handle a pokie.

I guess it depends on if you plan on handling your new arboreal or not. If not, go with the pokies, if you want to handle it, go with a Avic. I have many of them and they are great. The A. metallica I have is around 2.5-3", it is fast at times, but it is doscile also.

I say go with the P.cambridgei. The Trinidad chevron is an aboreal and man are they awesome looking. But if you get another avic, then I agree with Weapon-X.

I agree, get a P. cambridgei. It may be a bit faster and more skittish, but I don't think unless you're trying to handle it all the time you have much to worry about..
