    I suspect he's a male, but not yet MM. There's no palps or hooks at all.

    Actually these should say no palps.

    No *emboli. He still has pedipalps. ;)

    Only T. apophysis has tibial hooks out of the Theraphosa genus (not surprising, as 'hooks' are just the common name for tibial apophysis), so they are not an indicator for maturity in T. blondi or T. stirmi. Tibial apophyses aren't the best indicator for maturity anyway, as they can be easily obscured by longer setae on the tibia. The presence or absence of emboli on the palps should always be confirmed.

    Nope, nothing that I can see. At 6" there's no way it's fully adult.

    My girlfriend gave me 2 new tarantulas for my birthday today. An H.maculata at around an inch maybe inch and a half and a H.gigas around 2 inches. I already rehoused the H.gigas with no issues into a sterilite container full to brim with moist substrate and as for the H.mac i will wait for it to molt before rehousing. That makes 13 tarantulas for me now, 10 old worlds and 3 new worlds.
