I want something that webs a LOT but not sure what species to go for, I know caribena versicolor's are decent Webbers but I have a sling already. Any suggestions?
Fixed that for you
while i don’t think M. balfouri is a beginner-beginner species i do think they’re definitely a good beginner-OW species for people with prior tarantula experience and outside of my beloved Ceratogryus genus i recommend them a lot to those that can afford them - they’re definitely some prodigious web slingers and while there hasn’t been too much research on their venom, at present, it seems more mild comparative to other baboon speciesEveryone is forgetting about M. balfouri! Love my juvie. They’re a fast terrestrial OW and may not be beginner friendly for that reason, but their care is relatively simple and they love to web up the enclosure. Definitely more forgiving than H. pulchripes or any chilobrachys sp.
Thanks, i was trying too hard to get the GBB right and totally forgot about the Chilobrachys .Fixed that for you
I would say a Chilobrachys (OW) is too fast and their venom is a little intense for a "beginner" species.
