PostSubject: Any Really Cool Colored Beginner T's   6/17/2011, 11:21 pm

I'm just getting into T's so my question is are there any really cool colored/patterned relatively easy to care for T's ?

I've got a couple Avicularia sp. and am currently looking to get another Theraphosa blondi.
I had one before was pretty cool but was to into scorps to really get into them then so traded it for scorps.
Plus it kinda scared the crap out of me a little.

Please any suggestions would be appreciated. I really don't care much about venom potency, just cool looking T's for the collection.

Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens. The slings are very colorful in this species.

And of course I always recommend Pterinochilus murinus. Amazing spiders through and through.

+1 street.

Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens - green bottle blue.

Murinus Are damn nice spiders (not so nice with the attitude) I'm really happy with the dude I got from pelo.

Pokies have pretty patterns and colours but are mental fast.

My third spider mate,
1st was a Chile, day after I had a P. murinus then day after a calceatum.
Never had a problem with ANY spider, never been bitten/ stung.
makes no difference how nasty, venomous or fast they are or how experienced/ inexperienced you are if you are careful. Don't go near it and it it cant get you.

Words of wisdom peloquin.

I'd say T's that kick hairs are worse than biters. Wouldn't fancy a face full of urticating hairs

Lol I wasn't planning on it street. The only new world I'd really be interested in would be a G Pulchra. I'd call it ronaldinho.

Never ever buy a Blondi. They are extremely expensive imho extremely ugly.

They are super aggressive, they stink and when they get old, they always get stuck in a moult (sooner or later). Finish all that goodie I just said, with the fact that you get a bad rash of them even if you keep 2m distance. Those darned hairs are just all around them even when they are not kicking.

As far as size goes, yes they are supposed to be the biggest. If you want something equally ugly but even larger, a wolfspider by the name of Heteropoda maximais even larger (legspan)

rant off :-) and yes I had one.. I say it again, I was glad it died of old age.

Makes a change for 1 to die of old age.
I've had a couple of hundred of them and find them a nightmare for dropping dead when you have to put them into a larger tub.
They might live for 2 or 34 years in 1 tub, give them a new home and they drop dead.
They are just a manky brown spider and not worth getting.
I'd advise anyone wanting a big spider to go for L. parahybana, P. cancerides or A. geniculata... in that order.

I was just starting arachnids out back then and it was an almost mature male. It went through two moults and lived for about 3 years without much moistureness.

But it was like Pelo says, a dull brown-red spider which hissed like a champ and itched like an even better champ. Dont say you have not been warned :-D

get anything that takes your fancy really, Iv never subscribed to the idea of beginner species etc. Aslong as you research first there should never be an issue, get a nice big female P. regallis or a N. coloratovillosus oooh or a A. seemani

+1 on P. murinus

Definitly a nice species, ive got an adult female NCF, eats like a champ and like it dry, and not to picky about temps either, 14-28c if im not wrong, wont go under 20c with mine tho as my room never gets cooler than that.

Ceratogyrus darlingi is also an awesome species, my first t's were actually 0.0.1 G. rosea RCF and 0.0.2 C. darlingi (now 2.0.0) they have a pretty nasty temper too (baboons) but theyre not as fast as P. murinus, and they never run as long as the P. murinus.
