Popularity

I think terrestrials are more "popular", but personally I prefer arboreals. Lol, but even so I do have some of both :)

Arboreals are so popular right now! Pokies! Avics! Singapore blues! I like terrestrials better myself but as far as popularity goes, I think Aboreals are the catch of the day!

i dont understand the question. I mean popularity in pets seems hard to figgure. Id say with the vast numbers of G. rosea being wild caught for the pet trade they are the most popular . but only because tey are cheap and what the pet stores carry. B. smithi used to fill that spot.

Personally i like them all. I have more terestrials now. Only one obligate burrower and one arboreal. I have another terrestrial coming and anothe arboreal ... hmm if singapore blue is arboreal lol i hear they like to burrow in captivity.
anyway

i didn't think the question was quite specific enough. i went ahead and voted terrestrial because i believe that to be the most popular over all. There are a lot of T's sold in the pet trade and a great deal of those are terrestrial. If you asked specifically about T hobbyist, i would have voted aboreal.

I voted terrestrial, but it really depends on each indviduals opinion. You should have had a question like, "whats your favorite type of T?"

I have Lasiodora klugi and i think that is interesting when he/she build that her tunnels and how do they make them , but as someone before sed everybody needs to have individual opinion.

I voted Arboreal!
I can see where you're coming from if you think the question was a bit open, I think its aimed at personal preferance not popularity in the hobby!

My Fav's are pokies.

G.rosea is prob the most popular in the hobby for reasons already stated above.

I also feel it should have been more specific, but I went for Terrestrial as I think that your G rosea & B Smithi are some of the most sold T's. I'm sure just about everyone has at least one of the 2. That is the way I took the poll.
