      Any of the Psalmopoeus. IMO, P. cambridgei are the calmest, yet you must be careful because they are speed demons.

      Yeah, Psalmopeus irminia came to mind.

      If you are looking for speed, I could also recommend Hapalopus sp. colombia large. Had a few escapes from the female I kept for a friend a few years ago.

      I agree with the above, Psalmopeus cambridgei, P. irminia and I really like Psalmopeus pulcher. But any Psalmopeus would fit the bill. You could also look at the Tapinuachenius species. They are also a good intermediate step to the Old World T's. Tapinachenius plumipes are gorgeous.

      I'm sorry I didn't get back here sooner. I love your adds. P. irminia and P. cambridgei are both "bill fitters" for your original question. Great choices. B. cabocla are beautiful and really fun T's to raise. True eating machines.

      Pterinochilus murinus (OBT), on-the-other-hand, is truly a "fast species" which is what you were originally looking for. OBT's are not only fast, but they also possess highy potent venom which they are, more than happy to inject into you. So, ..... please be careful with that little bugger.

      If I could offer a few suggestions, all designed to help keep you safe. First, ... before you open your OBT's enclosure, ... know where the T. is. Either have a visual on it, ... or if it's burrowed in, have a good idea of where in it's burrow that it is. Be prepared to react if it charges you. It probably won't do that, but be prepared anyway. Have a catch cup handy. And always remember that, what you invision as "FAST" is an underestimation (think Starwars, ... Jump to Hyperspace"). And understand that, what we refer to as "potent venom" won't kill you. But you might wish it had if you do happen to get bitten.

      I'm not trying to alarm you, ... really. I just want you to be prepared and vigillant. OBT's are beautiful and spectacular T's to keep. It's doubtful that you wil ever have an issue with your's. But you shoud know the potential of your T. I'm sorry if I un-nerved you.
