      Next T

      I'd like to find a fast growing, long lived T one that'll be with me for a while, right now I have my GBB, A. Chalcodes, and G. Porteri. I was looking at a Curly Hair just because it looks like it's perpetually disgruntled, drank too much coffee or stuck it's leg in a light socket haha. Or a G. Pulchripes.

      Brachypelma and Grammostola are generally slower growers, although the two you're considering (Brachypelma albopilosum and Grammostola pulchripes) are fast-growing for their respective genera. If you don't mind the moderate growth rate, you can't go wrong with either of these. (Both species are hardy and generally have docile temperaments.)

      A lot of the fastest growers are either arboreals (which tend to have shorter lifespans, though still many years) or Old World species, which are not good choices for beginners due to their speed and potent venom.

      That being said, for fast-growing New World terrestrials:
      • Acanthoscurria geniculata (not docile; thinks everything is food)
      • Lasiodora parahybana (dirt cheap but beware of itchy urticating hairs)
      • Nhandu chromatus (can be feisty and has moderately itchy hairs)
      • Neoholothele incei (a dwarf species that lacks urticating hairs; fast and skittish)


      If you're interested in arboreals, Avicularia is generally the best beginner genus, but I would not get a sling as your first, as they are more fragile. I'd get a juvenile (2" or larger) of one of the hardy, inexpensive species like Avicularia avicularia.

      A. Geniculata
      N. Chromatus
      LP

      Those are the only three i can recommend for dast growing beginner species. I almost said P. Cancerides, but one of those would be very overwhelming to a beginner.

      LOL! Well, that just might be the best and funniest description of a Brachypelma albopilosum that I have ever seen. My pick would be Grammostola pulchripes.

      I like all the suggestions given, and the curly hair idea you have. I think A genie or curly would be my top picks. Have you looked into B vegans? That's a nice one too.
