This tarantula is a pretty good pick for people starting out or who are already into the hobby. They aren't generally aggressive unless you sweep your hand quickly towards their face and can even be handled on occasion. They have a healthy appetite and like with most tarantulas are very fun to watch hunt. They should have a hide in their habitat as they sometimes like to just keep to themselves. Other times though, you'll see them walking around exploring their environment. They aren't flighty either which is a plus for those who like to handle their tarantulas. They are very easy to maintain since they come from desert regions and therefore don't need to be misted or have vegetation in their habitat for comfort. I recommend the species to anyone who is into tarantulas!
