"I've been in the what some would call exotic animal hobby. I've had snakes since I was 5. Geckos, frogs, mantids, etc etc etc. I've been keeping tarantulas for a decade now and had everything from a king baboon, to 8 kinds of pokeys, and even a few new world terrestrials. I've always heard of the nasty temperaments and even worse toxicity of the poecilotheria species. With my experience with snakes I've learned that there are individuals that go against the typical norm temperamental wise. And the same can more than likely be said for Ts. It's really a case by case understanding. I've had snakes who are supposed to be nasty and aggressive ad they were quite the opposite. And vice versa. Same with so called 'beginner' tarantulas. I've experienced rose hairs worse than my king. Basically in short I would never recommend holding or handling your pokeys simply of the danger to the tarantula, but also the danger of the venom. I unintentionally held my P. Rufilata. I took my eyes off her enclosure while feeding next thing I knew she was on my hand. She never once skittishly ran or became aggressive. I held her for a few minutes and put her back she was quite the doll. Still never held her again though! She was a big girl lord knows the venom she held. So, CASE BY CASE. INDIVIDUAL BY INDIVIDUAL."
