The G pulchra sat #1 on my want list til I got one. The GBB is a close 2nd. Nothing like that velvet jet black looking good natured tarantula.

G. pulchra if it were my money. I had a male that I raised from a sling, loved the experience, and sent him off to breed when he matured. Still looking for slings so I can get another pulchra ASAP.

Just got the GBB today! Was expecting to find a Grammostola pulchra at the show but nobody had them.

http://www.arachnophiliacs.com/tar.html has G. pulchra slings over 1" and a sexed female as well. They start @ $75 for 1.5" and $85 for 2". I didn't look at reviews on them though and have never purchased from them so I can't say what their business is like, so if you're interested I would look that up before making the plunge.

The picture could be found on my Instagram @plantbasedjimbone. And @miss moxie, I asked that company if I could buy one and they said they would have sexed ones soon.

Neato burrito! As long as they don't price gouge the females. I know they're not the easiest to come by but some people really jack up prices to take advantage. I've got a female pulchra and I adore her. She's beautiful and fun to watch. A must have for any collection in my opinion!

They quoted me $175 for a small female not including shipping. An other thing, how long does it take a green bottle blue tarantula to reach adulthood?

Well their suggestions are all relatively docile tarantulas so I'm not sure OP is looking to get slapped around by a psalmo!
I think ratmosphere has kept his fair share. Psalmopoeus cambrigei are pretty nice from what I've personally seen.

Ah, I just had a pulcher and she was very mean to me. She called me a gutterpunk then punched me in the face, then punched me a second time for flinching.

I've heard cambrigei are kinder. They only punch if the crickets are too small.

I've heard that too recently which is ironic because I got pulcher as my first psalmo because I heard they were less defensive than the rest.

You live and you learn. I def don't regret the pulcher. I had no issues with her though she was constantly threat-posing and slapping the side of the enclosure. She was a beauty.
