    It's a red and black Psalmopoeus, nothing more needs to be said :troll:

    Mine's only a juvie so it doesn't have full adult colours yet but so far it's a decent grower, great eater and has a bit of an attitude already.

    lol on which one I might get. I really like the colors on the c. Versi and already got an lp so I’ll probably get the Versi.

    I meant that there's no competition between the two. One, the goddess Theraphosa, is a majestic beast, the other is.....yea. :troll:

    Grab one of these beauties a Cyriopagopus lividus. Very spunky Ts, always ready to defend their turf. They kinda like blue and gray OBTs in their attitude. Love my girl though, she has really calmed down since I put this hide in there for her. She even went full terrestrial on me and filled her burrow in and just uses the hide.

    What tarantula species are readily available in the Mexican hobby?

    We have a lot of avics, caribena, geniculata (these come as freebies pretty often), a lot aphonopelmas and brachys, obt's, davus (pentaloris and faciatus),
    some phormics and pamphobeteus, pokies, grammostolas, some euathlus, pterinopelma sazimai, gbb's, and nandhus.
    those are the ones you can get easily and legaly, maybe some more but im not sure.

    I’d recommend Pamphobeteus sp., not just because I’m a huge fan of them, but also because they’re large and colorful. Great display species as well. Here are some of mine, a lot of them are slings/juvies but they get this incredible coloration as they grow.

    D. fasciatus aren't in the hobby, if you get one then it's a mislabelled pentaloris

    Get a Chilobrachys species of any sort if you like to be on your toes and always ready for the unexpected.

    Carapace colour, pentaloris is orange, fasciatus is black.

    D. pentaloris (formerly Cyclosternum pentalore) was mistakenly sold en masse as D. fasciatus (Cyclosternum fasciatum) back when they were still Cyclosternum spp., some people still do it (either unknowingly or on purpose).

    Get one. Get one now. I'm totally in love with mine.

    Great coloring half red half black. Good eater, arboreal, heavy webber, makes amazing dirt curtains, always see mine out except in premolt.

    If you have the money and these are available near you, you will kick yourself later if you don't get one now. They are new and a bit harder to find at the moment and could go off market and not show up for a while.
