      Do you have a picture of the container you intend to use?

      Grammostola tarantulas generally have a docile temperament. That being said, each tarantula is a unique individual, and sometimes you end up with one that has an atypical temperament (for example, more defensive or skittish than average).

      Welcome to TsUS ChristianS. G. pulchripes ARE the perfect beginners T. They are beautiful, they get really big (up to 8") and they are dosile. That being said. I have a 12 year old female G. pulchripes that never got the memo about being the "Gentile Giants" of the T-world. Mine is a real brat. But she is the exception to the rule and I'm sure that you will love your new T. You chose well. Please post pics when you get it. We love to see pics.
