Nhandu chromatus

about 6cm in size. The guy i bought this from said its a Nhandu chromatus (just 2cm in size) . Im just wondering. Is it really a chroma? If yes, when will the white patches on its legs show? Thanks!

      I'd ask for a refund or replacement as the guy sold you a Brachypelma smithi, definitely not a Nhandu chromatus.

      This certainly isnt a Nhandu. It looks like Brachypelma baumgarteni. This is still quite a rare T. Worth more than Nhandu and a great addition to a collection.

      Edit: now looking on PC it looks more smithi.

      Absolutely, 100% not a Nhandu. Still a valuable spider, but not what you paid for.

      B. Smithi pretty thro ..sorry you didn't get what you paid for .

      Are you in the Phillipines? That looks like a boehmei/smithi. There's a guy there selling all kinds of weird hybrid Brachys. If it were a pure Brachy, it would be worth much more than a Nhandu chromatus, but that looks suspicious.

      B smithi or other, you should ask for a refund unless you want to keep the brachy ;)
    • ChanTheMan
      Actually, I agree with @KezyGLA, it definitely looks like a B. baumgarteni.
