G Rosea

The G Rosea (Grammostola Rosea) is the perfect starter T. It is generally docile and very calm. The G Rosea is what you find in most pet shops and is probably the most common T to own. These T's are very easy to handle and I would recommend one to anyone who is looking into collecting T's. They are also very easy to care for with only a few crickets per week. These T's have a very long life span and grow about 5" in about 4-5 years. These T's dont bite often rather they flick their hairs at you when scared which can cause mild skin irritation.

B Emilia

The Brachypelma Emilia (B Emilia or the Mexician Red Leg) is a great starter T.
 This T is very docile and easy to handle and is strongly recommended to anyone who wants a nicely coloured starter T. These are easy to care for eating crickets and other bugs and growing from 5-6 inches.
 Handling this T is very easy because it is so docile and calm. Larger T's can sometimes eat a pinky mouse

P Regalis

The Poecilotheria Regalis (P Regalis for short) is a great T to own. This T is great for experienced collectors because of its speed and its temperment. If you are inexperienced and want to own a P Regalis be warned that they are very fast and are someties quick to bite. These T's only need a medium sized enclosure because all Tarantulas have very short sight range and if the enclosure is too big they will get stressed out and have a hard time catching their food. As all Tarantulas their bite is not deadly but it will cause some bad cramping in the bite area which will last for quite a long time. Aside from that they are beautifully coloured and make for a good display specimen but are best left alone unless its necessary to handle it.

T blondi

The Theraphosa blondi (or T blondi for short) is the biggest known Tarantula and can have a leg span up to 12 inches. Though I have never owned one of these T's id really love to but I dont have a suitable enclosure at this time. Anyway for peple who want to buy one of these I would not recommend these to beginners as they can be rather aggressive and as for handling them that is also not recommend because their 1 inch fangs can cause serious damage even though their venom isnt that potent and is only as bad as a bee sting. To finish this post off I would recommend this T to an experienced collector who knows what their doing.


 Hello, I am a Tarantula collector/breeder. I collect all kinds of T's and I breed them. This blog is mainly to give updates on what T's I buy and some tips on keeping them. Firstly I want to show you my Avicularia Avicularia or Pink Toe Tarantula. The Pink Toe lives in trees so a good tip for if you are keeping one as a pet is to have a tall enclosure with lots of things for it to climb on. Also be aware that these T's can and do jump when scared so be careful if handling one. These are great starter Tarantulas and I would recommend one to anyone looking into collecting Tarantulas.
