how aggro are Avicularia sp?do they flick hairs much? i just bought 10 slings from spidershop and one is an avic.
also what is the temperament of Cyclosternum fasciatum like? these are the only two i am unsure on.
so all together i spent 42.94 on:
1x Avicularia sp.
"Peru Purple"
1x Cyclosternum fasciatum
5x Brachypelma vagans
2x Euathlus sp. "Red"
1x Grammostola pulcheripes
the avic is 2cm and the rest are 1cm.

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Aggro? Not at all. Skittish? Sometimes.

Avicularia are the teddy-bears of the tarantula world and pretty good ambassadors to arachnophobes. By the way, "Peru purple" is probably Avicularia purpurea. Some are brilliant as adults, some are kind of dull. The young are greyish with the standard Avic tiger-stripes. Keep the slings nice and humid.

I've never seen an Avic with a bald spot and I've only seen them flare once or twice at a friend's place; the response was "Aww, you've got venom dripping! So cute! Razz "

Cyclosternum are fast and insane. They're not very large as adults, maybe 6-8 cm legspan.

A few pictures of our friend's A. purpurea: http://nay.rabscuttle.com/gallery/view_album.php?set_albumName=purpurea&page=1

The common name listed at the link says Ecuadorian purple, but hey, Peru and Ecuador share a border.
