    For me, it's by far my P. sazimai specimens. They threat pose their food half the time. :hilarious:

    Those two have given me more threat poses than the other 42 I've kept combined.

    How about you?

    C. lividus, G. porteri, H. maculata, and P. metallica (maybe) I've gotten one threat pose out of each, so I have a four way tie.

    Its like this if you so much as look at its enclosure,and can stay in this position for 20 mins or so.
    Im hoping for an attitude change when it molts.

    My D. diamantinensis male. From his penultimate to his ultimate molt, he threat postured every time I fed him (but still ate well). It was a grumpy 4 months.

    H. namaquensis. It's a bit strange, because I've three of them (from @KezyGLA ), all female, and while two of them are pretty chill the third spazzed out at every occasion. Every stupid little mealworm gets threat postured extensively and feeding roaches invariably involves running around and falling on her back, fangs exposed. @Garth Vader - can I get a diagnosis, please, and some treatment options o_O? I'm kind of thinking about some anxiety disorder :penguin:. ;)

    This lass is probably my most defensive tarantula with regards to a threat posture. If I'm recording her to feed she will sometimes rear up. With that typed they're still a rare occurance.

    #1- C. lividum
    #2- only one of my C. marshallis
    Other than that I think it's kinda wierd for how many OWs I have that I dont really get that many threat poses unless I'm actually rehousing.

    Easily my AF Pterinochilus murinus. Had a few from my Chilobrachys sp Vietnam blue when I first got her, but had none for months. Had a few from my Lampropelma violaceopes too. Never had one from any pokie though.

    Why do you wish for change? I'd take this over clouds of hairs any day. Look at it's adorable anger. :hilarious:

    My quickest to threat postures currently is a small 2" M. balfouri juvenile.
