James,
Well, it depends on what you're looking for. If you want a t that you can handle, or a more feisty one. I suggest:
*P. scrofa
* G. aureostriatum
* G. pulchra
* A. anax
*A. chalcodes

A. geniculata... not bashful, nice looking, nice size, and a healthy appetite.

C. cyaneopubesnens... colorful, nice webbing, bullet-proof (to quote Code Monkey), and if you get it as a sling, you get to see it's appearance change with nearly every molt.

L. parahybana... impressive size without the problematic molts of the T. blondi and nice growth rate... although I've not seen that yet.

Personally, I'd got with all three to save on shipping.

You're a youngin aren't you? Your parents really don't mind all the tarantulas?

Well, I too think the genic is a pretty good choice. I've had one for a while now. When they are young, they grow like weeds! For the first 3 or 4 or 5 molts, my jaw dropped every time when I saw the difference in size. For the past couple of molts, though, I haven't noticed too much of a difference in size growth. I'm not sure if I would ever get another one though. There are other ts that look similar, but are brighter such as L. crista (which would get you a lasiadora) and the Brazilopelma colloratvillosum (This might not be the current scientific name -- it might be Nhandu (It went from one to the other, and I don't know off the top of my head, which way.).).

I noticed that you have an arborial and some terrestrials. Maybe it would be cool to get a burrower and/or webber.

You definately have the webber covered with the chromatapelma cyanopubecens!

I think A. seemani is a good burrower to start off with.

Good Luck,

Big Dragonfly

here's what order i got mine.

1, Curly hair (Brachypelma albopilosum)
2, Chilean rose (Grammastola rosea)
3, Goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi)
4, Indian ornamental (Poecilotheria regalis)


It was a big jump, from Chilean rose to such aggressive and large species, but i have been around Tarantulas since the age of 5. This should give you a few ideas though.


I recommend the curly hair, these can grow super FAT!!! They eat like pigs, are nice to look at, and very docile. They are also cheap to buy, easy to house and easy to find. Mine is the favourate in my collection.
