My collection wouldn't be complete without Poecilotheria, Psalmopoeus and Tapinauchenius. Also my Thrixopelma lagunas, she's fab!
I like variety in lifestyles/behavior.I am curious as to what specie are considered the "staples" of the hobby; those spiders that your collection would not be complete without?
Have you been properly haired by one of your Ts, though? I never experienced any serious effects of the urticating setae either, but somehow most of my Ts are reluctant to kick them in my direction. The really love me, that's why!
I think everyone should have at least one tarantula that gets relatively big to show off to visitors, like a Pamphobeteus, LP, A. geniculata, Phormictopus (or all of them )
Did I miss something somewhere? Its no longer E. sp. (Red)?I know dwarf species aren't for everyone, but I would say that H. sp. red (formally E. sp. red) is definitely a great species to own. What they lack in size, they make up for in personality.
My little one (maybe 1/3") is quite active, even at that tiny size.
