Picks are the following:

B. smithi

G. pulchra

C. cyaneopubescens

Basically I want a good, not too expensive display species that will be out and about as often as my rosie. Also something that will be plenty comfy in a large KK.

Thanks for the answers everyone.

B. smithi if you want a less expensive T. C. cyaneopubescens can be quite expensive and hard to come by, especially for anything but a sling as can G. pulchra. im sure the Smithi will be out more often than the others

Get the B. smithi. My juvenile is out all the time especially in the evenings and even if you disturb it it's not particularly bothered about running for cover Smile

They had B. smithi, but there were only 1/2" slings. So I took a 1.5~2"+ B. bohemi sling/juvi. It will be the first time I care for a young tarantula. Here's hoping it all goes well when I receive it on Thursday.

Here's Fireball, my Bohemi sling happily munching on his first two crickets he took down in seconds.

Well.... the paucidens didn't eat either of the crickets, one died and became lunch for the other.

Deciding not to let that large cricket go to waste, I took a risk and dropped it in the bohemi sling KK.

I say it was risky as the cricket was roughly the same size as the sling.

This is what happened after a couple of minutes.



Slight closeup



Fortunately, the cricket didn't struggle a lot, but a bit more since he's much bigger than the other ones the sling had a couple of days ago.
