Everyone knows that most people's first T was most likely a G. rosea. Mine was. Being that it is the most common T in the hobby, everyone probably has one. I want to know who DOESN'T.

*RCFs count

When I bought my first T I thought it was one but it turned out to be a P. scrofa.

I own one. :) Wasn't my first, but i picked one up because it seems that no collection is complete without one.

I've never owned a G. rosea before. My first T was H. lividum.

Yea none here, yet.

I hope to find a nice RCF variant at a show or dealer sometime as I do eventually want one.

Never owned one. my first T was my B. smithi. I used to think I would never own one, but now I would really like to get my hands on a female RCF.

I don't currently have one & feel ok with one :D

They weren't my first species, but I did used to own a NCF G. rosea that was a rock & a RCF G. rosea that would spazz out so badly it'd flip onto it's back while dripping venom.

Don't own one and there are plenty of other tarantulas on my wanted list ahead of it.

It's been a thing of mine not to get the most common animal in the market. As firsts, Fat-Tailed Gecko instead of a Leopard, Carpet Python instead of a Ball, Centruroides sculpturatus instead of a Pandinus imperator, Grammostola pulchripes instead of G. rosea. I still don't have any of the hobby staples like G. rosea. Don't really intend to get it either. At least not pay for one. There's a lot of other species I'd get before G. rosea.

I don't have one, never did. I did sit for one about a week. I can't remember her getting out of one of the corners at all! {D

I did my research on Ts before buying one. I decided not to contribute to the excess breeding for financial game by the pet store line and bought myself a Pulchra sling. Now I have a G. Pulchra, two avic Versicolors, and a Chilobrachys Fimbriatus who only chews off cricket heads :) .

I don't and never have owned one. This is actually at the top of my wish list though, but still under a few pokie's. However I want one that is captive bred, 3" or larger.

It wasn't my first, as I too have a thing against getting the 'most common' things around. However, I ended up getting one, and then two slings only a couple of days later. So now I own three of them... :eek:
