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.
