My fav's are the Ceratogyrus genus.
C. sanderi are awesome but not out much, darlingi and marshalli are beautiful spiders.
Nowhere near the fastest though.

i've got an OBT and a P. chordatus.
i mean talk about extreme pet hole, the chordatus has a huge burrow system that runs across the faun, i might as well top up the substrate to the top lol.
the OBT is epic, it's getting really webby since it's molted Smile it's about half an inch, i held it by accident because it ran up (sems as if up is where they go when you surprise them) my hand lol

For me, it is the OBT :-)

Poecilotheria are great too, but due to their arboreal nature, they are kinda risky imho.
I had one shoot up my arm a few times. Even knowing they do and can do it very fast, you cannot do much to prevent it. This is something I dislike about them..

They crawl via tweezers to your arm if need to be.

Why they do this is very simple. An arboreal always tries to escape via the top. If they can reach higher parts, they will do it.

it seems as if all spiders go up though.
my G. porteri a B. albiposum go up whenever i open their lid Smile
luckily they are not quick enough to get away, my hand is always ready and waiting and they seem a bit stroppy after that, so much so that every time it happens, the curly hair does a number 2 on my hand lol.

i don't think i'll get a pokie quite yet, i think an Avic would be a good 1st arboreal

not as well as arboreals, but they do climb, like i said, it's not quick enough that i don't have a good second to anticipate where they will go over Smile

The ultimate arborial has to be Stromatopelma calceata- Feather Leg Baboon.
Lovely, VERY fast and really defensive. Hisses, strikes and wont hesitate to bite. It's the only spider that's even come close to biting me, much respect for them.

Stromatopelma calceata are gourgess spiders aint they !!, but still, id have to go with my P.pedersini, although not my pritiest poeci, she has got one hell of a personality with her Smile

But then OBT's id say would be perfect for anything you look for in a spider Smile, they can be aboreal, terrestrial, or obligate burrower's Smile you can choose what you fancy Smile

Yeah I really like Stromatopelma too. Feather leg baboon. They will chase you I heard.

I really do like the bright orange murinus. Cobalt blues are extremly nice too.
