I'm just curious and thought I'd ask what your favorite species of tarantula is! My personal favorite is the H. lividum, though I have never kept one and won't even consider it until I am much more experienced but they are one of the most beautiful tarantulas I have ever seen.
So, what is your favorite species of tarantula?

for their pencil thick pigeon toed back legs and crushed velvet look.

They can get huge, have a fierce temperament, and they make really cave like burrows as opposed to the Cameroon Red which carves out intricate tunnels.

This species without a doubt :D

P. metallica is the crown jewel in anyones collection, so if I did own it i'm sure it would be my top 5 without a doubt.

BOOM! :clap:

I have a 2" female ;P

My current favs are the Cyriocosmus species, but all time fav is def. P. metallica or A.versicolor.

For shear madness and aggression, S. cal fo sho!

Then there's the T.blondi :D

That's a really tough decision... it would have to be between the L.violaceopes and P.irminia because those species I wouldn't mind having just bunches of the same species. Besides, with multiples, you stand a better chance at catching a peek at one of them. X-D

Stromatopelma calceatum hands down. Most amazing species I've owned so far. You can't accuse her of not being exciting!

Haha after just getting back into the hobby (properly) I now have 2.8-3.00'' female, gonna be an uphill climb from here on brining her to the reputed size, but thats part of the allure and reward when raising them yourself!

I cant wait as i was unwrapping it out of the shipping container all i could see was this magnificent orangey/red sitting at about 2.5". Here goes the 6-8 year battle to maturity, cant wait to have a giant on my hands.
