    Out of all the tarantula species that came in from Chile, this is perhaps the most interestingly colored. Look at that red with the black. A dwarf species to boot!

    Mature Male

    Mature Female

    They are adorable!! I saw one at a show recently and didn't buy it because it is a mature male and there were no ladies available for him.
    He was a very pretty baby and was gentle enough to be handled.

    Hello! I have a sling labeled "Euathlus ssp. 'Red'", will they turn out to be like that when it grows or its just another specie?

    Are you really sure your "chile flame" and his "red" are not one and the same?

    I was looking at sp. Red as well, whats the difference between the two? ( I too had been looking at The Spider Shop where they are labeled as sp. Red with common name Chile Flame)

    i was under the understanding it was size but it seems it could be variants of the same species....mine are definitely dwarfs though i have heard where these do get to the 4"-5"s...i'm not sure now, thanks eric lol...

    Hi Wayne,

    Different sources produced different common names.

    There were slings from Europe (as "red") available before the WC's (as "chile flame") were available here. Same spider.

    Most dealers only know what's been told to them (and sold to them) by the Chile guys... and I won't get started on them in this thread.
