Easterns are the best. They have literally an explosive amount of personality, and most seem to have a much shorter fuse than the westerns. Don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but easterns won't think twice about latching onto your nose, most westerns I've been around seem to be a little more docile.

My favorite phase of the eastern is what I call the "midwest" phase, the one found in Kansas, arkansas, missouri, etc, the jet black animals with scarlet red highlights. Some of these beasts are truly maginificant animals, almost built like an indigo sometimes, big, thick bodied apex predators. Right now I only have the Oklahoma eastern in my collection, but hope to add more someday.

Kevin
