    Guess my A. versicolor is a male as u can see...
    In the second pic u can clearly see its boxing gloves...
    He molted last week. Gotta look for a girl now...

    Wow, what a beauty, good look finding a mate for him, can never have enough Versis ;)

    Chique, I got my versi sling from here a couple of months back, not the greatest price for a sling (actually it was a bit cheaper than that price, probably because they were a bit smaller then), but it gets you one ;)

    Cheers for that, had a quick peek good site. Never 'mail ordered' a T before usually stick to my known breeders, nice n cheap to.

    But since they can't seem to get me a versicolor this could be a new avenue for me. I always thought it funny to practically post a T! make a change from the usual crap that get's deliverd!

    I think it's about 1.5 years old...
    Avic's mature fast... (and life span isn't that big either)
    These pictures are taken during molts of that same spider :

    Nope, males & females are the same barring the "business parts" like every other T. I assume you're asking because of the differing appearances in these pics: versicolors undergo an incredible morphing of colors from the time they emerge from the sac until they achieve the blue-green & magenta coloration of the adults. They are one of my faves because not only are they beautiful, they have very interesting and docile personalities.

    Male A. versicolor, just molted. So docile, and such striking colors...
