That's another Brachy. Curly-hairs are fun -- the OSU BugZoo has one that thinks she's a furry rock. Razz

the other side of the pond is the typical form. I just like over there a bit more. I gotta start using it more.

I wouldn't recommend anything with a genus starting with "P" for a first-time T owner.

The only P genera that come to mind are

Poecolitheria [sp?] -- scary ornamentals from India and surrounding area (medically significant)
and Pterinus [sp?] -- the baboon tarantulas (very bitey)

i started with P.regalis and now have both P.regalis and P.rufilata you can start with every scorp or T you like, you just need to know what your dealing with and not to handle them..
