    Nice, well I think it's cool how you're not letting your fear of spiders control you (: People thought I was crazy when I bought mine. I thought I was crazy. I'm scared of any type of spider, but I also thought T's were gorgeous. Good luck!

    For some reason I am becoming less and less afraid of T's, so I thought what the Hell, maybe I'm cured! Well uhmmmm I'm not! I saw an ugly black sucker at work and my fear kicked in full force! It's true when I say, the smaller the spider, the bigger the fear! Why is this? If I can tolerate the big brothas why not the little sistas?

    Its fear of the unknown. Its smaller therefor you can not make out the details. Just like in horror movies the monster is always scarier when partially hidden in fog and shadows.

    You have a very good point! Also I have noticed, when I look at the spider pictures, the more than 2 eyes give me the Willie lol

    I think that a lot of people were taught that spiders were bad and disgusting when they were younger, and that has carried on through our lives. That's just a TOTAL opinion though.

    My fear of spiders began when I was younger. I gave a quick run down on a thread called "why are tarantulas with snakes/reptiles" or something like that.

    A couple of tarantulas that fulfill your criteria of being colorful yet at the same time, ideal for beginners are the following:

    The Avicularia versicolor also known as the Martinique pink toe or the Antilles tree spider is an ideal beginners tarantula because of its hardy nature. It is also beautiful and magnificent to watch. Fun Fact, Did you know that they turn from the beautiful blue between 3-4 years of age to a beautiful reddish color when they become adults.

    Other Tarantulas that come highly recommended for beginners are as follows:

    1.) Eupalaestrus Campestratus also known as Pink Zebra Beauty

    2.) Mexican Red Knee Tarantula

    3.) Brachypelma Albopilosum also known as Honduran Curly Hair (ALTHOUGH not as colorful as the other species mentioned, it is still worth checking out)

    4.) Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens also known as Greenbottle Blue


    Check out Tarantula Pets, it has a bunch of detailed information for a beginner hobbyist looking to get into the hobby like yourself!
