It's not as crazy as I thought awhile back. Whenever I used to read a thread where someone got an OBT or a Psalmopoeus irminia as their first or second tarantula, I would facepalm. But there are definitely a lot of advanced species I would love to get. I only have one tarantula, but I've been seriously tempted a few times to buy a T. stirmi. Crazy, I know, but dang, they're cool. A lot of people get the P. muticus as their first tarantula, at the recommendation of several experienced users on AB. When I first heard about that, I was baffled, but to each his own, and the P. muticus is slower than most old worlds. What are you guys' thoughts?
