That all depends on what you like and want........... why ask a bunch of people that are not you? I mean do you want arboreal, ground dwelling, burrowing? All those things are only things you can answer. Look around see what fits what you like then get it!

next comes the other big question :? how much do u want to spend???? i mean there are several, very beautiful terrestrial t's such as M. mesomelas and several brachys, such as B. klaasi to chose from...though the 2 i just named usually are kinda pricey...
soo i'm kinda agreeing with the above, in that you should probably spend some time looking through some sites(rick wests or sellers sites) or go to the t gallery here on the boards.. pine through some t's and see what catches your eye...and who knows you might just settle on a P. regalis lol...good luck

Wow, Took we a while to get some words together, but NONE of them can explain how I felt when I first saw this. What an amazing and beautiful T. How big do they grow??

about 15cm, Its a Torquoise / blue Baboon spider with long white hairs on their femurs. As well as that they come from Sorocco Island which is off Yemen, which means it is near impossible to collect. as well a being really really rare
