If you feel you're ready for one sure. Get a sling and get used to its size and temperament with time.

Why not! Get what you want, it's your judgment call and your spider. Peoples' suggestions are just that, suggestions. Ultimately, you're the person who will choose what you get and live with.

Just a heads up, both species are extreme flickers!

I wasn't saying to to get them, just that you may want to hold your breath when opening the tank. Very Happy

I can't vouch for L. parahybana, but A. geniculata are very fast-growing and large. Ours usually just sits in the same spot all the time (never bothers to burrow or hide). She moves to the water dish to tell us she's thirsty and she always tackles roaches in the blink of an eye.

A. geniculata is a good beginner specie! Don't get anything to aggressive or too fast as it will end in disaster if it gets out (or a hurtfull bite anyway Wink )

It's a reference to the urticating hairs most new world tarantulas kick around their tanks and use as their primary defense. L. parahybana are notorious for their hair kicking and Mr. Mordax was just saying to be careful regarding that Smile
