My favorite tarantula is my Grammastola Rosea, adult female 3 years old... Named April O'neil.

Either G. pulchripes or H. cafreriana. I adore my G. pulchripes, and I have been falling in love with the Harpactira genus, with the H. cafreriana quickly becoming a dream spider.

C. marshalli is quickly edging top spot.
Baboons are just tops.
Curlies are great. Avics are nice. Obt's are dope.
They're all pretty cool.

For me, has to be my B. hamorii. The only T in my collection so far that I paid extra for a sexed female. Thus far, it has been worth it. She's always out and about, looking pretty and eating like she'd never been fed. Can't beat the all-time classic :)

Right now... I'd have to say my P. rufilata x2. Always great eaters, growing fast, rare colors, a hint of danger/excitement that keeps you in your best form everytime you're inside. Just beautiful! Owned since slings.

And as terrestrials, I just kind of fell in love for Brachys. I have a juvenile Boehmei and 2 Smithii slings and have plans for a couple others. The Boehmei just did it as my first 😍

It's a Peruvian commonly known as Thrixopelma sp cajamarca
Close, but no cigar. Thrixopelma didn't even cross my mind, heh :)

Brachys are nothing short of perfect ! Beautiful, generally docile, good appetite and long-lived. I want a klaasi, emilia and albiceps so bad :D

Very cool. I've never heard of it until now.
They can be a little bit difficult to find as they aren't often for sale. They are slow growers too so it takes a long time to mature. They are the calmest tarantula I've ever kept

Thrixopelma is a genus that has pretty much everything even though it doesn't have many members
