I'm well aware of ockerti. The rest ? Not so much.
T sp cajamarca are as calm as H chilensis but 5" or so. T cyaneolum is very calm, T Laguna's can be skittish when young but beautiful blue colours. There is another tarantula from the Cusco area of Peru the Theraphosinae sp Cusco that is thought to be a Thrixopelma also but they are a little bit firey

Interesting. The Theraphosinae sp. cusco is so beautiful. I saw one at a show that I was immediately draw to but it was way out of my price range.

My favorite tarantula species will always be the Poecilotheria ornata. But my favorite genus without a doubt will always be the Theraphosa genus.

I have one in my collection and it's very beautiful, they aren't a very large species in my experience I think if this is indeed a Thrixopelma then it may be the smallest

At the moment: Avicularia sp peru prurple.
One i probably will never own: Heteroscodra maculata.

There is no way for me to pick one species. The genus Tliltocatl definitely stands out, so many good qualities (good eaters, decent growth rate, visible, and beautiful species). Then there is P. murinus, N. incei, P. muticus. The best looking in my opinion is B. emilia though.

It was my Acanthoscurria geniculata, Baron Von Butterbean. He was so huge and dorky. I adored him and made fan art of him <3

Sadly, he matured out and I sent him away for breeding, but I was fortunately sent 5 of his babies. I gave one to a friend, so I still have 4 tiny idiot beans to care for and I love them all.
