Ah the Cambridgei. I have a love/hate relationship with these guys. I have always gotten them as slings, and they are surprisingly easy to raise and to keep healthy, but they are JERKS. The Ts that I've had in this species tend to be aggressive moreso than just defensive, and I really wouldn't want to get bit by one of these guys as their venom is known to be more potent than most new world Ts. Not fun. That's one reason I say its hard to say whether I would recommend this T to a beginner keeper. Yes, they are easy to raise and don't take a TON of effort to keep healthy, but theyre not something you'd want to end up having to handle in a situation where they managed to escape, or if you decided you wanted to handle a T to show a friend, etc. I suppose I would say OK for a beginner if you are going to ALWAYS keep them in the enclosure and on lock down, but otherwise for a more seasoned keeper. I do have to say though, they are a really pretty species, the ones I've kept ranging from olive greens to greys to dusty brown and even slight purple shades. They really like to web up their enclosure too, so they are fun to observe.
